When to use the Application for Preliminary Hearing template
Use this where you need to apply for an Employment Tribunal Preliminary Hearing for any reason, other than in relation to strike outs or deposit orders (we have separate kits for these).
The purpose of the Preliminary Hearing will be to decide how the case is going to progress from there to a Final Hearing. During or at the end of the Preliminary Hearing, the Judge will let you know what is going to happen next. Sometimes you might have to wait for a few weeks after the hearing before you get the outcome.
How you can prepare for a Preliminary Hearing
Once you’ve filled out your template with Valla, it’s best to know how you can prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. You should:
- create the template in Valla
- send the application letter or email to the Tribunal
- copy in the Respondent
- wait for the Tribunal to confirm whether or not a Preliminary Hearing is going to be listed
- gather any evidence that is relevant to the issue that needs to be decided at the Preliminary Hearing.
Legal services at Valla
While Valla isn’t a law firm, we offer many “un-reserved” legal services to help you run your Tribunal case. These legal services are delivered by hand-picked professionals with Tribunal experience and a variety of legal qualifications.
Some of our legal professionals are qualified solicitors and barristers, some are registered with CILEX, others have a law degree. All have extensive experience with the Tribunal and clients. Because we aren’t a regulated legal provider by the SRA, we hold our own professional indemnity insurance. You can read more on our terms of service.
