Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Has the other side objected to the inclusion of this statement?
Well they have no objected per se they have simply said you need to make an order to which we said not if you agree to its inclusion and they just came back and said you need to make an order!
well they are being a bit pedantic as if they agree to the inclusion then there would be no need for you to request and order. Nevertheless you can obviously write to the Employment Judge noting the claim number to explain that you would like the statement to be included. You should say that in accordance with the Tribunal's Overriding Objective as set out in Rule 2 of the Employment Tribunals Rules of Procedure, you ask for them to allow this statement out of time. You should say why it is out of time and why it is crucial to your case that the evidence be admitted.
The Employment Judge will then write to the other side for their comments before deciding whether to order for the inclusion or not.
If you have any further questions about this please do ask.
Hi is there anything else you would like to know?
No that's great thanks for confirming - we thought we were missing something.
No problem, do remember to rate my answer and come back to me if there is anything further you would like help with. Good luck with the case.
