Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For those of us who only make an Employment Tribunal Claim once in a lifetime (hopefully), the whole process is daunting, confusing and opaque. The available help and advice is staggeringly poor, unless of course one spends a fortune on professional legal advice. The playing field certainly doesn't feel like it's level, and it is no wonder that so many people simply give up.
This book fills the gap and is excellent. It explains the process in layman's language, and is stacked with useful advice. It's an absolute must for anyone making an ET claim without legal representation, and extremely useful even for those legally represented or advised.
If you've found this review because you've made an ET claim, then my advice is simply to buy this book now.

This book is book is a must have for anyone who has an involvement in making claims to an Employment Tribunal. Its not exaggeration to say that this book clearly maps the steps one must take when making either a claim or an appeal (to the Employment Appeal Tribunal). I have no hesitation in giving this book my highest commendation.

Format: Paperback
We purchased the above book for work - I support people with mental health problems in retaining their employment - and I have found it extremely well written, clear and informative. One particular part, Whether To Bring a Claim, pages 9 to 12, is fantastically clear, balanced and perfect for our clients and my colleagues. Although we always discuss the pros and cons of bringing claims with our clients, for whom health is already vulnerable, this book has explained it all so clearly, in a helpful, balanced and interesting way. It sounds spot on! The whole process of making a claim is explained clearly, with good case examples and is really easy to understand. For dry material, the authors manage to make it interesting, which is quite something. I read it outside of work hours - that's a first! Highly recommended. This book would be grweat for ANYONE intending to, or thinking about, raising an employment tribunal claim. Do not attempt to make a employment claim on your own without this book!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent account of how to run an employment tribunal case from start to finish. It is a bible for the fledgling advocate and a useful source of reference even for the experienced practitioner as well as a 'must have' for a litigant in person. I strongly recommend this book, which contains useful precedents and practical advice for almost every scenario one may encounter in tribunal.

Format: Paperback
Whereas most texts focus on the substantive law, Naomi Cunningham seeks to shed light on the process and tactics of running a claim in the Employment Tribunal.

This book will be of use to both the lay person and the new practitioner. For those in the voluntary sector who assist Claimants in the Employment Tribunal, the book is illuminating and a genuine must.

Format: Paperback
This book quite literally saved my bacon at the 11th hour in court. I took the book with me to tribunal as the claimant in a whistleblowing case. The employment judge was about to throw my case out on a legal technicality, the technicality being that I'd named the respondent as the umbrella company for the business I work for. My contract of employment clearly stated that I worked for one of the subsidiary companies. The umbrella company never denied that I worked for them and returned an ET3 form fully admitting that I work for them despite what my contract of employment said. The judge's problem was that he couldn't make an award against a company who weren't named as my employer in my employment contract. He gave me 10 minutes out of court to consider my position. I scanned through the book to see if there was anything legally I could do and there it was... the tribunal have powers under section 10 of the procedural rules to make a late amendment on the ET1 form. I made this request and after almost a whole day of legal discussions my request was unanimously granted by all 3 panel members. If you are taking your own claim to tribunal then this book is essential reading and reference material.

Format: Paperback
This book is a real find. It is an up-to-date, readable, practical guide which gives the potential claimant confidence and hope. What's more, it is down-to-earth and practical, and doesn't raise your hopes unnecessarily. I would be surprised to find anything better than this on the market. What I especially like is the way examples are worked through with notional cases. It makes the valid point that going to tribunal may cost you emotionally, but it sometimes just has to be done. Digest it in small bites...the advice is detailed, and needs to be fully absorbed. And I just love the humorous footnotes!

THESE SKILLS AND TACTICS FROM LAG's 3rd EDITION CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WINNING AND LOSING YOUR CASE

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

If you've ever participated in an employment tribunal in any capacity, or are contemplating doing so, you'll appreciate the need for this book with its pithy, self-explanatory title, and for its skills and tactics in 12 rounded chapters.

Like the other publications originating from growing library of the admirable Legal Action Group, this one is distinguished for plain speaking, accuracy and ease of use. The book functions as a practical guide through the pitfalls that are likely to arise within the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) process, especially those that can mystify and confuse.

And did you know that there are unwritten rules too in tribunal procedure? Here's a book that looks into the `mind', so to speak, of the tribunal, demonstrating, for example, how to write a successful letter, or create a successful submission, or prepare cross-examination notes and draft directions.

High Court judge, Laura Cox comments in the Preface that `in view of the now new and complex procedural regulations governing the conduct of the increasing number of cases...it is `a struggle to keep up with all this', adding that 'the art of running a claim in the tribunal and knowing how best tactically, to prepare for and conduct a hearing, involve skills which are just as important as a sound knowledge of the substantive law and procedure...
