If there’s a witness that’s crucially important to your case that hasn’t agreed to give you evidence, an Employment Tribunal Witness Order can get you the evidence you need.
You can use this letter template as a “last resort” to apply for a Tribunal Witness Order.
A Witness Order for Employment Tribunal can order a relevant witness to attend a hearing, as long as you clearly explain why that witness is necessary and why their attendance should be made compulsory. For example:
Tamsin’s former colleague, Hannah, witnessed a key act of discrimination that Tamsin is complaining about in her Employment Tribunal claim.
Tamsin has asked Hannah to give evidence but hasn’t been able to get Hannah to commit to doing this.
Tamsin makes an application to the Tribunal for a Witness Order.
Brian’s colleague, Florence, is a key witness in his case.

Brian makes an application to the Tribunal for a Witness Order.
