Government reforms: What’s new this month? (2) Tribunal rules

tribunal rulesFrom 29 July 2013 we have new Employment Tribunal rules which apply (with very limited exceptions) to all on-going and new Tribunal and EAT cases, as long as the Respondent receives a copy of the claim form from the Tribunal on or after that date.

The new rules include:

Comment: The rules are generally in welcome plain English and so are more user-friendly than the current set. These should provide a good framework to manage cases more flexibly and efficiently and speed up the litigation process, which can only be a good thing. However, of course, we will ultimately have to wait and see what impact the new rules will have in practice.
