Daniel Barnett hosts Q&A with the President of Employment Tribunals

Daniel Barnett recently chaired a Q&A webinar with the recently appointed President of Employment Tribunals, Judge Clarke.

Just three weeks into his new role as President of Employment Tribunals in England & Wales, Judge Barry Clarke, explained how tribunals are managing during lockdown and answered a range of questions from lawyers, employers and unions.

Questions and topics included:

  • How are tribunals managing?
  • Issue of fees
  • What are employment judges doing with their time when they are not judging cases?
  • Will cases beyond June be delayed?
  • The situation with listings in 2021 – will they be moved to accommodate unheard 2020 cases?

The webinar attracted over 1,000 viewers and is now available to watch online.

This webinar was in response to, and refers to, a recent review and a document has been published setting out the latest FAQs and a ‘road map’ to how the Tribunals service is going to take steps to resume as near to normal service as possible. Read the document here.
