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.


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

Bear in mind - it almost never happens. So don't hold your breath.

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
