Application for a default judgment

This template for an application for a default judgment, refers to correct legal rules and is framed to help you get a default judgment in your favour. It does not include guidance. For guidance as well as an application template see How to get a default judgment in the Employment Tribunal


A “default judgment” or “judgment in default” is when the Employment Tribunal makes a ruling in your favour without your employer’s contribution.  This usually happens if your employer has not done something they are supposed to do. For example, not responding to your claim within 28 days.  Failing to do what they are supposed to do is the default. There are several grounds under which you can get a default judgment in the Employment Tribunal.
