Employmentbuddy - Your best buddy in human resources

Prior to case management discussion checklist

  • In good time before the CMD, you should send to the Tribunal and the Claimant/s a proposed agenda for the CMD, setting out your proposed submissions on the issues which the Tribunal has indicated, in its Notice of CMD, together with other issues you wish to raise.
  • It may be possible for a CMD to take place by telephone. Normally the tribunal will expect both parties to attend. The CMD will be conducted by an Employment Judge sitting alone. You will not be required to bring or present documents or other evidence to the tribunal and you don`t need to take any of your witnesses with you to the CMD.
  • The Employment Judge is likely to discuss at the CMD, the following:

the issues involved in the case and which of those issues are in dispute
which documents you and the claimant will be relying on
the witnesses you and the claimant are likely to call
the likely length of the main hearing
the date or dates of the main hearing
the need for medical reports or expert witnesses
whether there are any preliminary issues which need to be decided before the case proceeds to a full hearing, for example whether or not the claimant is an employee or a worker, or whether or not the claimant`s claim is time-barred
