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.


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

The police would need to decide whether to pass it to the Crown Prosecution Service and the CPS would then decide whether to prosecute. There's guidance on the offence on the CPS website

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

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
