Fairbank v Care Management Group, Evans v Svenska Handelsbanken AB - Curtailing an ET1 [2012] EAT

An Employment Judge does not have the power to make an order effectively curtailing the scope of the claim contained within an ET1: other methods, such as perhaps striking out irrelevant paragraphs, should be used to manage the case.

These are two conjoined appeals. The ET1s in both cases were settled by the same solicitors and were effectively statements some 27 pages long comprising more than 60 paragraphs. In both cases the Employment Judges (EJ) made an order under Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2004  Rule 10(1) that the Claimants in each case "provide the tribunal ...with a concise statement of the claims with a minimal statement of the supporting facts. Such statement should not exceed one side of A4 paper and should be comprehensive without reference to other documents."
