I have just received Employment Tribunal papers. What should I do?

You should take legal advice as soon as possible. You will need to present a response to the relevant Tribunal office within 28 days of the date on which you were sent a copy of the claim, using an ET3 Form. Your response should include your full name, your address, whether you wish to resist the claim in whole or in part and if you wish to resist, on what grounds.

If your response is not submitted within the relevant time limit, or it does not include all of the required information, default judgment may be entered against you or alternatively, you may be prevented from taking part in the proceedings.

For more information call freephone 0800 975 2463 and ask to speak with an Employment Solicitor or contact us by email today.
