How to respond to any applications your employer makes in a Tribunal
Your employer may make a number of different applications throughout your Tribunal case. You will have the option to respond to these applications before the Tribunal makes a decision. Use a Response to Application Made by Respondent template to respond to any Employment Tribunal applications made by your employer clearly and effectively.
Examples of when a Response to Application Made by Respondent template is useful
There are many situations where your employer may make an application that you’ll need to respond to, for example:
The Respondent in Owen’s Employment Tribunal claim has made an application for an extension of time to submit their ET3.
Owen does not agree that an extension is necessary in the circumstances. He sends the Tribunal a response to the Respondent’s application, objecting to it and copying them in.
The Respondent in Raphael’s Employment Tribunal claim has made an application for the Final Hearing to be held remotely.
Raphael thinks this would be a sensible approach, especially as he lives in a rural area and so getting to the physical Tribunal hearing location would be a challenge.
He sends the Tribunal a response to the Respondent’s application, agreeing to it and copying them in.
