An Employment Tribunal Case Management Order is an instruction for you to do something by a certain date. This may include providing evidence and documents to the Tribunal and disclosing and exchanging evidence with your employer. It may be helpful for you to propose Case Management Orders, along with your employer if possible.
Ultimately, it’s up to the Judge to decide on what Case Management Orders to make and the deadlines, however if you’re able to agree with your employer, the Tribunal is likely to follow your lead.
