Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
Were you told that written reasons would follow?
Thank you. You do indeed have the right to ask for written reasons of the Employment Tribunal’s judgment and as you can see from the letter, the deadline for doing so is 14 days from the date the judgment is sent. As it was sent on 8 November, you have until 22 November to make such request.
You can see what the official guidance states about the procedure to do so:
“You should make your request for written reasons for your judgment at the hearing or within 14 days of the date on which the judgment was sent to the parties. That request should be made to the tribunal office which sent the judgment.”
So all you need to do is write to the Employment Tribunal (you can even email them) and state that you wish to request written reasons for the judgment to be sent to you.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Yes no problem, it can be very simple like this:
Case No:(###) ###-####2020
I am the Claimant in this case and received a copy of the Employment Tribunal judgment on 8 November 2021. I now wish to exercise my right to request written reasons for the judgment and would be grateful if you can please arrange for them to be sent to me in due course.
My pleasure, have a great evening too
The deadline to ask for reconsideration of the decision is 14 days from the date the written reasons are sent to you so you do not need to do that yet. When you make the request for reconsideration you need to check the rules for doing that here:
Unfortunately I won’t be able to help with that because you need to explain the reasons why it would be in the interests of justice to do so and that will depend on the grounds for the original claim and the reasons for the decision. This is not something we can consider on here as you would need more specific legal advice on it
No, that is separate t the appeal, you can ask for reconsideration and then you have the choice of appealing to the EAT, but that is up to you
Hi there what did you want to know about that phone call, please?
