As Daniel Barnett kindly posted yesterday, the East London Employment Tribunal is currently experiencing major problems with its caseload due to a lack of judicial resources.

Apparently, the East London Employment Tribunal has reached “the full extent of the budget allocation for this financial year and, as a result, there is no remaining judicial resources to hear your case”. This possibly explains the difficulty that Redmans have had in contacting the East London Employment Tribunal and the multiple postponements of hearings over the last 3 or 4 months.

Cases to be heard on or before the 5th April (apparently the end of their financial year) have been affected. Mr Barnett has stated that the Employment Tribunal was unclear as to whether this affected only some or all of the cases to be heard before the 5th and, unhelpfully, the Employment Tribunal representative was unsure. Not really a satisfactory state of affairs.

On the bright side, the Tribunals Service Press Office told Mr Barnett that the position was “under review” and that additional funds may possibly be allocated.

IMPORTANT POINT: if you have a case to be heard before the 5th April 2012, be aware that it may be postponed and re-listed.

Prompt efficient service. Hourly, and part thereof, billing got a bit stressful at times - as opposed to flat fee - made me think twice about sending an email or making a quick call when I had a query because it would have eaten up minutes from my budget. But happy with the legal service I received overall and would recommend.

Chris Hadrill has provided a truly wonderful service and was willing to lend his support and expertise at a time when other solicitors, only wanted to discuss their fees! A clear thinking and down to earth professional, Chris can be trusted to listen carefully to your matter, cut through the fog, and advise you on the best (and most realistic) way forward, saving you time, money and heartache. It will be helpful if you first get your ducks in a row in terms of documents / evidence etc. and then contact Chris, (that’s what we did) as this will help your matter to be dealt with faster. The more organised and together you are the more successful you will be. You'll be fine with Chris, I highly recommend him. Good luck!

I was generally impressed with the fast turn around, efficiency, responsiveness, and consideration of circumstances. I needed a couple of areas of advice quickly and with Redmans help was able to get to a conclusion quickly and with minimum stress. They were friendly and professional throughout - I'd use them again.
