Can I submit exhibits with a claim form to Employment

Customer Question

Can I submit exhibits with a claim form to Employment Tribunal ? Is there any restriction on how long the claim form can be ? The document which I prepared seems to be of 9 pages.The claim is concerned with Breach of Contract, Unfair Dismissal, Race Discrimination and Harassment and Victimisation. How much fees do you think I need to pay ?

Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. What exhibits are you wishing to submit exactly?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Exhibits or Appendices of evidence of emails and contract etc.
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.

You do not submit evidence and exhibits with you claim form. This comes later in the process when the disclosure process takes place. You will be directed by the tribunal later on when you need to this and what you need to do. So do not send these in yet. You can put as much detail as you need in the claim form but remember that a lot of the detail will also come from your witness statement later on in the process. In terms of fees you are likely to only pay one set of fees of £250 for the issue fee and £950 for the hearing fee
