The Claimant was dismissed with immediate effect for misconduct on the 28 June 2013
The claimant believes the respondent acted unfairly in dismissing her, had insufficient evidence following an investigation that was flawed and acted to avoid the payment of redundancy due to her. The claimant wishes to seek redress and compensation.
Has a claim been submitted yet or are you in the process of doing that now?
Sorry just seen this in the additional information box, which was out of view.
So, what does she actually need to do at this stage, what is the next step of the process?
she needs to put her papers together (not much as she was a junior member of staff) I think 7 days to the hearing. Respondents have sent her a bundle of papers with their side of the story. She has no experience of this so a little imformation of what she needs to do will help
Ha the tribunal issued a case management order, for example setting out specific dates to do specific things leading up to the hearing?
the claim has been submitted. hearing date is 28 February. It does however seem like the claimant is ill equiped to fight this big dinausaur employer in tribunal
only that claimant has 7 days before hearing to present papers
does it specify what papers?
it simply says - you may supply written representation within 7 days
it also says that she must comply with any case management issued. i am not aware claimant received any
are you still there - or have i not answered correctly
I am just finishing off my response
Ok well the usual order of proceedings would look something like this:
thank you. As she will be representing herself and with little or no experience - will they just ask her questions at the tribunal and she simply answers
more or less yes, the tribunal knows she is not legally trained and will not expect her to know everything about the process, but at the tribunal the respondent will have the chance to ask her questions, the tribunal may ask her to clarify things and she will also have the opportunity to ask the respondent and its witnesses as well if she has any questions
thank you very much. i will let her know this. that will be all.
You are most welcome. Please take a second to leave a positive rating for the advice I have provided as that is an important part of our process. Thank you and feel free to bookmark my profile for future help:
