How to Write an Effective Witness Statement for the Employment Tribunal

Witness Statements in the Employment Tribunal

This page discusses Employment Tribunal rules and the law on writing your witness statement. It also provides a witness statement template with guidance on how to write an effective witness statement. You should use it for all witness statements that you are asked to submit in support of your claim or applications. As the person making the claim, your witness statement is your “Evidence in Chief”. You will also have to prepare a witness statement for every witness that you are calling to support your case and they must attend the hearing.  If you do not prepare a witness statement, the ET may not allow your witness to speak on your behalf at all. Worse, the case could be adjourned, and a costs order made against you for wasting everyone’s time.
