The Employment Tribunal Process: Disclosure of Evidence

Step by step guidance on the Employment Tribunal Process

In this episode 194 of the podcast I bring you the fourth in a mini series covering step by step guidance on the Employment Tribunal process. This is applicable for both employees who may want to make a claim and employers who may be defending a claim.

This 4th episode is about the process of disclosure where you are required to share the evidence you have with the other party. In this episode I cover:

  • Your legal obligation to provide documents that support and undermine your case.
  • Why you have to provide documents that may help the other party’s case.
  • How to prepare and where you need to check for evidence.
  • The type of evidence that you will typically have.
  • How to prepare the list of documents.
  • What you should do about redacting documents.
  • Whether you need to disclose confidential or commercially sensitive information.
  • What you need to do if documents are missing from the other party’s list of evidence.
  • Why you need to avoid a ‘fishing expedition’ in the disclosure process.
  • What you should do about recordings of audio or video.
  • What you should consider in regards to covert recordings.
  • How to prepare the index for the final bundle of evidence.
  • What evidence to include in the bundle for the final hearing.
  • What to do if there is a dispute about the evidence to include in the final bundle for the hearing.
