Remote hearings for Employment Tribunals have grown more common recently. Use an Application for Hearing to Take Place in a Different Format letter when you want to change the format of a hearing, for example if you need a virtual/hybrid Employment Tribunal instead of having it be in-person.
Generally, to change the format of your Employment Tribunal hearing, you would need to apply to the Tribunal. The reasons could include, for example, medical reasons such as a positive Covid test where you would need a remote or hybrid hearing.
