EAT Announces New Practice Direction on Remote Hearings

Etiquette on the conduct of remote hearings during the current lockdown has necessitated the need for the President of the Employment Appeal Tribunal to revisit the rules.

 ·         Procedure where a judge sits with one lay member;

·         Guidance on how partial and full remote hearing will be conducted; and·      

·       A ban on the recording by either party of the remote hearing
