  1. Hi, I've searched and searched for an answer to this and can't find it. I'm hoping someone will be able to help. Under JSA if you won an employment tribunal you had to pay back any JSA received from the award. But if you settled 'out of court' you didn't have to pay back the JSA from the settlement amount. Does the same apply to UC? Or would a settlement 'out of court' be classed as earnings? Thank you.
  2. Hi, I have loads of questions about employment tribunals as I am representing myself in one for discrimination. Can anyone help with my first (and certainly not last) question? If I represent myself, am I obliged to be cross-examined by the respondent? If not, what are the pros and cons?
  3. hi everyone , Just looking for some advice , the situation i am currently in at the moment is this , my wife was claiming ESA for the both of us , and we were both on it for maybe 18 months or so , and she also claims PIP ( she was on high rate pip , then on the next medical she got put down to medium rate pip, but never questioned why it had been lowered) , she then got told she needed to go for a medical ( she passed the first medical ) ( she has Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) , she has had 3 surgeries so far and its looking like she will be going back for a 4th surge
  4. Sent my appeal off with some brief details of why i was appealing , Had a Letter from DWP confirming that they received my appeal, and about how much ESA i will get until it's heard, But so far over 1mth since requesting the full written statement of the Atos wca Form IB /ESA85, But so far i have not been sent it, The person that i recently spoke with from DWP ,Confirmed that they could see that i had previously requested it, but could not understand why i had not yet received it, What can be done to force them to supply this info,(assuming it actually exists) ?
  5. I am interested to hear from anyone who has experienced any of the following or like events in Employment Tribunals:- 1. Rudeness, or conduct of any Panel Member that was not to a standard that the normal employer or employee is entitled to expect 2. Witnesses being called into the hearings to hear other witness evidence or any part of the trial. 3. Legal Representatives having conversations with Panel Members before the the case is started 4. Failure of Panel Members with the appearance of a connection or interest in the case not st
  6. A close friend did not get enough points on an ESA ATOS medical in April 2013. She put in appeal forms on time, along with all the medical evidence she could. She had leg and foot issues causing mobility problems, severe gastric problems and PTSD. She got her first tribunal date on 7th January. She got all worked up, went along and found the DWP hadn't sent anyone. She was told the tribunal would be adjourned. In the intervening months she has had many hospital appointments, started specialist psychotherapy for the PTSD which has mentally made things worse, had a gastroscopy confirmi
  7. New guidance has just been published, which is well worth reading for anyone self-representing... http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/tribunals/employment/rules-legislation/presidential-guidance-general-case-management.pdf It deals with almost everything you need in very basic terms and is a great reference guide.
  8. hi if the respondent submits false allegations, everything from theft, drug use, violence etc., in the desperate attempt to defame the whistle-blower, can they be sued in turn for making defamatory claims and committing perjury, hearing goes public shortly??
  9. My partner has got a date for his tribunal hearing, which is in a few weeks - as you will imagine there is no other topic of conversation and it is causing huge stresses . I have a couple of questions that hopefully some of you may know the answers to........ 1. If he refuses to attend (because of the anxiety it is causing) will this go against him - even with a very comprehensive statement which will be sent beforehand ?? 2. can it be heard in his absence ?? As I have heard yes and no. 3.Do you legally need to provide evidence ?? - Even if it is Mental Health issues ?? And wha
  10. Hello, any advise on this matter would be greatly appreciated. So, I've recently had the tribunals service decide in favour regarding a 6 month sanction on JSA. The decision notice states - the appeals are allowed and the decision made on the 18/10/12 regarding the sanction are set aside. There is also a third section that states the reasoning of the decision... I was not duly notified in accordance with requirements. I just wanted to know if this meant I should receive full JSA payments whilst still signing? Will I get back all the allowance refused because of the sanction?
  11. I was just wondering if some of you had any advice on surviving the long and stressful ET process. As per my other post, I have raised an ET against my employer. I have spoken to a number of organisations (Equality helpdesk / acas helpdesk) and legal people and have not met one that has said 'mmm, not sure you have a case there'. My doctors and psychiatrist are backing me 100%. Fortunately, most of the evidence I have is in writing and in my possession. My questions: 1) I am off work sick and no longer receive any pay from my company. If the ET takes nearly 2 years to get to cour
  12. Hi, I'm new to this and forums, so forgive me if I've put this in the wrong place. My ET1 was accepted. The employers submitted an ET3. Due to 'an administrative error' (Employment Tribunal's phrase), there has been a very long delay between my being physically attacked by my employers and the submitting of forms by them and the employers. I have literally just received the hearing and due process dates and today I have received a letter from my now ex-employers' solicitors, asking for an unbelieveable amount of information, that I would have to get together by this coming Monda
  13. As in the title. Hopefully this time someone will provide me with specific answer without flaffing about...
  14. Seriously. I am not talking about a clerk forgetting to put a letter before the judge on one or two occasions. I am talking about staff prejudicing the attitide towards the whole of the process to the point that the case is damaged and later lost. Claim involves psychiatric injury so that would be personal injury claim (?). All backed by law that clearly supports above case. Where do we start?
  15. Business Secretary Vince Cable has proposed a cut in how much workers can claim for unfair dismissal at employment tribunals. He will consult on plans to cut the limit on compensation payouts to a maximum of 12 months' salary. He also wants to bring in settlement agreements, in which staff agree to leave without being able to go to a tribunal, but get a pay-off in return. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19594879
