The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals (E&W, and Scotland) have published FAQs arising from the COVID-19 Pandemic with details of how tribunals will operate during the coronavirus crisis.
The updated guidance is summarised below, but bears reading if you have a claim currently in the tribunal:
June 2020 – A few simple hearings will start, using the Ministry of Justice Cloud Video Platform but there will not be many hearings.
July/August 2020 – Cases such as unfair dismissal, simple money claims and preliminary hearings will begin to be heard in person at tribunals which are COVID ready.
September/October 2020 – Cases will start being decided using the Cloud Video Platform, with a small number of in-person hearings or hybrid hearings.
November/December 2020 – Consolidation and review of COVID measures.
