How should I describe my case on the Employment Tribunal form?

On the ET1 form you will be asked for certain information. Your claim cannot be accepted unless all the relevant information has been provided. You must complete the sections and provide the Tribunal with:

  • your name and address;
  • the name and address of your employer (known as the Respondent);
  • details of your salary and benefits;
  • the type of claim you're bringing (unfair dismissal, discrimination etc.);
  • an extended section for you to use to fill out the details of your complaint; and
  • details of any representative instructed to handle your case.

You need to state whether your claim relates to your dismissal, and which remedy you seek against the respondent, i.e. compensation, reinstatement (in your old job) or re-engagement (to an equivalent job).
