Case of the Month
10/2020
The New Normal
Most preliminary case management hearings in the ET are now taking place on line (Teams, Zoom, Skype) or by phone. Some full hearings are also online (Cloud Video Platform). The changes are working well and may be here to stay. Here is a link to the Presidential Practice Direction on remote hearings and open justice. This sets out the way that open justice should be preserved during remote hearings, for example by witness statements being put up on screen or read out by the witness. http://emplawservices.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/PG-remote-and-in-person-hearings-September-2020.pdf And here the Presidential Guidance on remote and in-person hearings. http://emplawservices.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/PG-remote-and-in-person-hearings-September-2020.pdf This sets out the factors to consider when deciding whether a hearing should be remote, partly remote, or in person, and gives guidance on how parties should prepare for remote hearings (including guidance on lodging documents).
