COVID-19 Business Update
Due to the concerns surrounding coronavirus we write to inform you that from Friday 27th March 2020 our office may be closed for a temporary period or periods.
In the event we are forced to take this measure we will continue to conduct business as normal and will be responding to all emails and calls remotely. We will do whatever is possible to minimise any disruption.
We would ask that from today and until further notice that all documents are scanned and sent to us by email although original signed documents (e.g. Contracts, Deeds and Wills etc.) and/or proof of ID/address documents should still be posted or dropped through our letterbox as usual.
All telephone calls will be handled remotely but in the event the line is engaged please leave a voicemail and we will call you back. Due to the volume of calls expected, we kindly ask that you email rather than call. We thank you for your cooperation.
Employment Tribunal Cases
From Monday 23 March 2020 all in-person hearings (hearings where the parties are expected to be in attendance at a tribunal hearing centre) will be converted to a case management hearing by telephone or other electronic means which will take place (unless parties are advised otherwise) on the first day allocated for the hearing.
This will provide an opportunity to discuss how best to proceed in the light of the Presidential Guidance dated 18 March 2020, unless in the individual case the President, a Regional Employment Judge or the Vice-President directs otherwise.
