Help!!!!!

]I am a disabled single parentm I was made redundant following a restructuring which happened while I was off sick, I put in claims for disability discrimination, sex and race discrimination and Unfair dismissal. I recently attended a CMD (I am self representing) and the judge said that part of the issues I asked the tribunal to deal with were out of time and that I could use it as background information or by a certain date inform the respondent if I still intended to pursue the claims that were deemed out of time.

 

I Informed the respondent that I wished to pursue these claims as it was a continuous act of discrimination and the restructuring should be dealt with in its entirety as the discrimination occurred throughout that process.

 

They have now informed me that they are going to ask for a PHR and will ask for their costs to be paid for by me...

 

 

I have no money as it is, this has been ongoing for almost a year and the redundancy money is all spent and I am not working as I have clinical depression as well as existing conditions which have been made worst due to the stress.

 

What are the chances of me being made to pay the respondents costs or is it just a tactic to discourage me from pursuing the claims?

 

 

Please I need advice!!!

Hi, welcome to the CAG

 

I very much doubt this will be granted. The tribunal only award costs in exceptional circumstances, and usually if you case has no chance of succeeding or you continue to fail to meet deadlines.

 

Its a scare tactic by the respondents solicitor.

Thank you Ibruk, on reflection I came to the same conclusion the issues deemed out of time are really bad so I can see why they will threaten me in this way.

I have the same problem with my case, my issues are out of time, but the tribunal has yet to bring that up, so far my respondents solicitors are being ok, but i am waiting for the scare letters to appear.

Hello there. Well, I think you've come to the right place then. Several people here are in various stages of ET claims and I'm sure you'll have plenty of advice and encouragement.

 

My best, HB

We have now progressed to PHR and the threatening letters have started coming. Surely it is not right for the respondents to use intimidation or scare tactics in this way?

No, but they will do it anyway. Post them here for an opinion if it will make you feel better, but they are just being normal.

 

Costs will usually only be awarded if your claim is vexatious and time wasting. Also, if you have no money, they can't have it.

 

They will also regularly send letters telling you that you have no chance of success. Ignore these too!


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!
