From April, Glasgow employment tribunal will list cases on a Thursday evening between 5.30pm and 7.30pm, for litigants who would like an evening slot. There will be a maximum of 2 judges available to hear the cases listed. If there is enough interest then they hope to expand the service to a Tuesday evening. Previously they operated evening sittings for short (fast) track cases (essentially unpaid wages) on two evenings a week, but stopped after the introduction of Employment Tribunal fees.
The President of Employment Tribunals (Scotland) has asked that any representative who would be willing to represent clients in short track cases on a Thursday evening let Sandra Muir know via Glasgow.Vice.President@justice.gov.uk.
