Firstly, Apologies I am acting on my partners behalf (the claimant).
No, I have not asked the respondent, as they will definitely not respond. They have managed to delay the hearing for a whole 6 months due to maternity holidays etc etc and most likely on the 24th June (the first day of a 2 day hearing) they will come up with another excuse to delay again. Even, with a case management order they did not respond until I asked for a strikeout.
I am just concerned that as the Judge will take their minutes as fact (rather than doctored to suit their case and missing vital correspondents), even though they have not been independently. The Audio recordings were eventually sent to me after much pressure. Furthermore, a separate fire registrar book has not been sent under disclosure of evidence. This was only brought to my attention today by my partner.
I can write to the respondent and employment tribunal, but have little faith that it will be acted upon, so am a little concerned about how to proceed.
That's fine, but what can I precisely write to ensure that the requested items are put into the bundle and what can I do if they do not do as request?
I know there is a massive back log at the employment tribunal and due to courses etc it was taking up to 3 weeks for the Judges to view requests. Therefore, if the Respondent does not respond / put the items in the bundle, then how will I deal with this in the hearing?
Thank you very much I appreciate your help and positive advice.
