Why you should get an Employment Tribunal Witness Statement
An Employment Tribunal Witness Statement is a document that records the evidence of a witness, which is then signed by that person to confirm that the contents are true. A good Tribunal Witness Statement format should include a record of what the witness saw or heard.
This template is for use by Claimants in Employment Tribunal cases who are asking witnesses to give evidence to support their case. If you’re the Claimant in your case and want to write your own Witness Statement, use our Employment Tribunal Claimant Witness Statement template instead.
Examples of when to use a Witness Statement for Tribunal
Having a witness that can speak to the issues in your case by providing a clear, concise statement can be very helpful for you to back up your case. For example:
Sakura is making a claim for racial harassment in the Employment Tribunal.
One of the key incidents of harassment was witnessed by her ex-colleague, Vic, who has agreed to provide a Witness Statement and give evidence at the Tribunal Final Hearing.
Sakura uses Valla to show Vic the structure and format of how to write his statement.
How to use an Employment Tribunal Witness Statement template
If your witness has agreed to write a Witness Statement for Tribunal, here’s your next steps to ensure it’s useful:
- ask the witness to write the letter using the template in Valla
- let the Respondent know that you are ready to exchange Witness Statements
- arrange with them when you are going to do the exchange
- send your Witness Statements to the Respondent at the agreed time
- make sure that you bring a few copies of each of your Witness Statements to the Tribunal hearing (if this is in person) or have electronic copies to hand (if it’s remote).
