Employer committed perjury at employment tribunal

Recommended Posts

The tribunal was a few years ago and i didnt have the evidence then but i have it now.

 

The employer lied to the court about details which the tribunal took as true and used them to find my dismissal fair.

Without these false details the court would almost certainly have found in my favour.

 

It wasnt a case of they made a mistake with the details, the evidence i have shows they knew the correct details and told the court something else.

 

I didnt appeal because i didnt have the evidence then and you only get 42 days to file an appeal. Ive heard of perjury cases being brought up to 14 years after someone has lied in court ie jeffrey archer.

 

If a lie affects the outcome of a hearing then it shouldnt matter if its a criminal court or an employment court.

 

How do i go about getting my employer taken to court for committing perjury? Who do i report him to?

Perjury is a criminal offence, so the police, who will decide if there is sufficient evidence to press charges.

Yes you have 42 days to make an appeal, however, if there was fraud or concealment, then the time limit could be extended

 

 

See section 32 of the Limitation Act 1980

 

 

You have to first write to the Tribunal who made the decision for a Reconsideration

 

 

You have to have real evidence, not just assertions

 

 

 

When it has been found by the Tribunal that someone lied then you can make an application to bring a contempt of court proceeding

 

 

Strangely, judges rarely grant such applications

 

 

Finally, I don't think you would go far with a perjury case (it has too many hurdles)

 

 

I would advise you concentrate on winning your case based on the new evidence

 

 

In Ladd v Marshall 1954 the principles for bringing in an out of time appeal were set

 

 

Take a few moments to read it.

 

 

Good luck

Remember how Andy Coulson was cleared of perjury even though he was found to have lied

 

 

Perjury cases have a lot of hurdles

 

 

Try and go for the contempt of court proceedings as it is easier

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
