EAT Checklist

  • Posted

The snappily entitled “Checklist for lodging an appeal in the Employment Appeal Tribunal against a decision of the Employment Tribunal” has been created in-house in the EAT in an attempt to assist would-be appellants in lodging appeals. It obviously does not stand in place of the EAT Rules or the Practice Direction but is intended as a helpful additional tool. Although this may be of most use to those who are not professionally represented and are unfamiliar with the procedures of the EAT, experience shows that even the more experienced EAT user can make errors when lodging an appeal.

On the assumption that would-be appellants do not intentionally submit appeals that are “not properly instituted”, it was felt that a checklist might assist in the lodgement of appeals against ET decisions to the EAT.
