  1. Hey rebel11, greendollar, Roblynmouth and others - First and foremost, Happy New Year, as it has been awhile. I wanted to provide a quick update on the case I had hitherto brought to the CAG. I was finally contacted by the Respondent's Solicitor (following a 7th missed deadline for Document Disclosure) who was yet again resistant to (1) giving me the final set of documents I requested, (2) agreeing that the documents I provided him be included in the Bundle, claiming again they were not "relevant" (even though I had taken the advice of another poster here and advised them that t
  2. Hey greendollar - Wow, you really have been through the mill with your case! I just cannot believe how much money these companies will waste spinning in the wind instead of simply coming to the table to finish it. Talk about reputational risk! Plus, the bank I worked for - their solicitor is so, so, so condescending to me. I do not know if it is because I'm a woman, because he thinks my case has no merits, or because he thinks I lack the willpower. However, even if it is all of them, he's in for a rude awakening!! I know in my heart that my case is good ... I appreciate yo
  3. Hey greendollar and Roblynmouth - Happy Christmas! And thanks for speaking up, you've given me some good suggestions. I think my strategy is going to be fourfold now, including contacting the Solicitor, the Tribunal Chairman, the CAB, and then trying to move this up the pitch. I will likely post by Draft letter for the Chairman here as I mentioned before, so I hope you might provide comments if you have the time. Really, I felt quite lost and helpless recently, feeling at the mercy of the Respondent and their solicitors. You have all given me renewed hope in this matter,
  4. Hey HB Thanks for the note. I think I had called them once early last year, but it hadn't looked promising. I should follow-up with them again anyway. I hope to have some time today to work on the Tribunal Chairman letter. Everyone on CAG has been so helpful so far, I really appreciate it Thanks again all! EmmaP
  5. @Colin813 Thanks again for the note. Don't stay up late on my account! I did meet with a no win, no fee solicitor, but I don't think he was taking me very seriously. My insurance doesn't cover the legal advise question though, and I don't really have the extra quid to invest, so I'd prefer to try my best. Thanks for the privilege background. So, what f the solicitor sent me a raft of internal communications between the Respondent's HR and legal departments that demonstrate they knew they had broken the law, and only after I questioned them on this, he invoked privilege. Has
  6. Hey Colin813 At this point I think my plan is to follow your advice with a phone call, simultaneously prepare the letter to the Tribunal Chairman, and then inform the Respondent's rep that I'll be creating a separate Bundle owing to the impasse they have created. No, have not had a CMD yet, and am wondering if I should request one at this stage to discuss? Is there any special format that requesting letter should look like? Perhaps I could do as rebel11 and include the CMD request in the same letter to the Tribunal Chairman asking for the documents to be admitted? Do you (or o
  7. Evening Rebel Thanks, maybe he/she'll see this thread and drop me a line/reply. Regs Emma P
  8. To the CAG team, @Colin813, thanks for the advice. I'll definitely give them a ring in parallel to working up a contingency request to the Chairman; good to have a few options. Back to honeybee13's point, the ET must think there's something to my case as they've estimated a 4-day hearing, which some associates advise is unusual. So, getting this right is going to be critical to success! @rebel11, I appreciate your offer and will likely take you up on it. However, as a newbie, I'm not certain I understand what "Sidewinder" is. Is that a handle for a CAG user, or something else?
  9. Hey rebel11 Thanks so much for your help, you are tops in my book! I'll get working on a letter and come back to the group if I have any follow up questions. I just want to do a bit more work on the draft before bothering anyone on CAG any further this evening. I see one already over how to include some explosive internal emails they sent me inadvertently (and later tried to invoke privilege on when I drew their attention to their mistake almost a week later). If I posted draft language (scrubbed of specifics, names), would you give a quick perusal? Thanks so much aga
  10. Hey rebel11 Cheers for that, very helpful! So I understand, do I include with that letter paper copies of the documents themselves, properly labeled? Should I also CC a copy to the Respondent's solicitor (like under Rule 11 for the disclosure order request, or a different rule)? And, what happens if the solicitor objects? Will they then send a notice to the Chairman as well objecting? Cheers! EP
  11. Hey rebel11! Thanks so much for your help and insights. W.r.t. asking the Tribunal Chairman, would that be a letter to the Regional Secretary? And would I also send the Chairman copies of those documents as well? I think if I asked the solicitor to send them that (in addition to another condescending email), I'd get stiff resistance to that request. I have been trying my best to look online, but have not found any examples or anything so uncertain how that kind or request to the Chairman would be structured. Does it make sense also to request a CMD? I have seen some posters on CA
  12. Hey HB Thanks so much for the swift response! This has really, really been a harrowing experience and I truly appreciate any help you and others can offer! I used to work for a City bank and in the end, for the ET, they actually wound up engaging a national firm who has been running things. But, as I said, I feel because they have been putting the Bundle together, they are unfairly putting me at a disadvantage. Whenever I insist that any documents which implicate their clients be included, I get a multiple email run-around which ultimately results in a "We are of the view it is
  13. Experts of CAG, I hope you can assist ... I'm embroiled in a ET claim against a former employer for unfair dismissal. But, I'm encountering significant resistance from the Respondent's representatives. Their solicitors were ordered by the ET to prepare the Bundle. However every piece of incriminating evidence I have against their client that I want included, they challenge the relevance over. Even after I explain the relevance, they still reject the explanations and refuse to include them. Plus, their male solicitor has been incredibly condescending to me as well, making me feel
