How an Application for Rule 21 Judgment can get your case resolved

If your employer hasn’t responded to an Employment Tribunal or they’re not contesting your claim, you can apply for a Rule 21 Judgment. Rule 21 in the Employment Tribunal Rules means that a Tribunal can either issue a decision on your documents, or fix a hearing.

Examples of when you can apply for a Rule 21 Judgment in your Employment Tribunal

Although the Tribunal should make a Rule 21 judgment on their own, it may be helpful to send this letter in case the Tribunal doesn’t issue one straight away. Here are some examples where you can apply for a Rule 21 to the Employment Tribunal:

Example

Nikolai has made a claim in the Employment Tribunal but his ex-employer has not yet submitted a Response, even though their 28-day time limit for doing this has passed.

Nikolai phones the Tribunal and they confirm that they have not yet received anything.

He makes an application for a Rule 21 Judgment to ask the Tribunal to determine the issues in the case without a hearing.

How you can apply to the Employment Tribunal for a Rule 21 Judgment

If you haven’t received a response to your claim, you can apply for a Rule 21 Judgment. You should:

  1. check with the Tribunal before you start - it’s possible that a Response has been received and just not been processed by the Tribunal yet
  2. create the template in Valla
  3. send the application letter or email to the Tribunal
  4. copy in the Respondent
  5. wait for the Tribunal to confirm whether or not a hearing will be listed or whether they are able to make a decision on the basis of the documents they have received
  6. chase the Tribunal by phone if you don’t hear from them.
