The Presidential Guidance starts by setting out the general rules for actions by the parties and for actions by an Employment Judge. The Guidance then goes on to provide detailed examples of how the rules should be applied in relation to:

  • disclosure of documents and preparing bundles
  • witness statements
  • making amendments to the claim and response, including adding and removing parties
  • establishing the existence of a ‘disability’ in relevant cases
  • remedy, including Polkey deductions and what a claimant needs to show to prove loss
  • costs
  • timetabling
  • concluding cases without a hearing, and
  • judicial mediation.
