HM Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS) have issued guidance on the presentation of an employment tribunal claim post 29th July 2013. You can read the guidance here.
In addition, there are now new format ET1s for presenting the claim or ET3s for responding to a claim which can be downloaded from the HMCTS site. The links in this blog are accurate for claims after 29th July 2013 but you should always visit the HMCTS site to avoid using an out of date form.
Those familiar with the format of the ET1 pre 29th July will note that the form looks crisper and apart from the top and tail for fees similar information as before is required. For those familiar with the old ET3 again little has changed apart from the look and style. There is an additional section which makes it easier for the employer to bring a counterclaim almost as a reminder to the employer.
What are your thoughts on the new forms?
