Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Is there a dispute over what is to be included in it?
Hi there, one would indeed expect the bundle to be agreed and finalised before the hearing, except for any disputed documents. Unofficially it is the respondent that prepares the bundle but that is only because it is assumed that as the company they will have more resources to do so. However, it should be agreed in advance who is responsible for doing this and whoever assumes responsibility would be expected to finalise it in time for the tribunal.
The main thing for you is to have seen the documents to be included in it and been able to reference them in your statements. Page numbers in the bundle are not that important at this stage, although they should be finalised before the hearing. I have been to hearings where the bundle has not been finalised in time and the tribunal has just had to go back and forth looking for the specific documents when reading the statements. It is not a disaster as long as the documents are there on the day. All you can realistically do is keep reminding them to finalise it and just bring the documents in the bundle yourself as backup on the day.
