The Employment Tribunal Process: Witness Statements

Step by step guidance on the Employment Tribunal Process

In this episode 195 of the podcast I bring you the fifth 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 5th episode is about the process of preparing and exchanging witness evidence. In this episode I cover:

  • When you need to exchange statements.
  • How to prepare witness statements.
  • What witnesses to call.
  • What you need to include in the witness statement.
  • Why the word count in your witness statements is important.
  • Why you need to consider the number of witnesses.
  • When to make an application to the Employment Tribunal to extend the word count or increase the number of witnesses.
  • What to consider if you want to compel a witness to attend.
  • Why it is important to agree the time for exchange of statement.
