If you’ve already submitted your ET1 or Particulars of Claim - also called Paper Apart in Scotland - and need to change it at a later date, you’ll need to explain the reason for the change to an Employment Tribunal. The Tribunal won’t always allow amendments to be made. Use this application to amend ET1 template to give yourself the best chance for the Tribunal to accept your amendment.
Bear in mind that if you want to add a new claim, it may be better to do this by making a fresh claim, instead of making an application to amend. You can then ask for this to be consolidated with your original case.
Generally, to make an amendment to your ET1 or Particulars of Claim form, you would need to apply to the Tribunal. For example:
Marianne originally made a claim for constructive unfair dismissal and breach of contract.
In her Particulars of Claim she had also intended to plead a whistleblowing detriment claim.
The Respondent disputes that this formed part of Marianne’s original claim.
Marianne therefore makes an application to amend her claim.
Jimmy has noticed a typo in his Particulars of Claim where it refers to an important date.
He makes an application to the Tribunal to amend his claim to correct this.
