The President of the Employment Appeal Tribunal, Mr Justice Langstaff, has issued a Practice Statement dated 17th April 2012.
All practitioners who appear in the EAT should read the full document; the summary below is not a suitable substitute. The main points are:-
- in cases where fresh evidence arises, the preferred course is to seek a review from the Employment Tribunal before appealing to the EAT;
- appeals should not normally involve citing more than 10 authorities. Practitioners should use the official law report copies where possible, and highlight the relevant extracts in the authorities bundle.
Any practitioners who do not comply with the Practice Statement may be asked to justify their departure from it.
