Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I think I understand what the legal issue might be; however I do not understand the scope of the evidential issue.
Solicitor: Jenny McKenzie,

Can you explain the context of the question please?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have been asked to agree a list of the issues in a forthcoming case at an employment tribunal. Upon closer examination of the order it actually says that both parties should agree a list of the legal and evidential issues.
Solicitor: Jenny McKenzie,
 replied 2 years ago

Please bear with me while I prepare a response.
