New claim

Heading: What is this claim for?

Remember, you can make more than one claim for the same events. In fact, it’s very common in tribunal cases to bring multiple related claims. Once you finish this claim just add another.

Why use mitigation of losses:

In the Employment Tribunal, you have a duty to reduce the financial losses you have experienced. For example if you have lost your job, you should conduct a search for a new job or get medical evidence to show why you have not done so. Otherwise, the Tribunal may reduce the amount of compensation it awards.

Examples of when mitigation of losses apply:

If you’re claiming compensation for financial losses, you’ll need to show mitigation of losses in your Employment Tribunal case. Here are a couple of examples of this happening:


Reuben is making a claim for unfair dismissal.

Since his dismissal 10 months ago, he’s been unable to find another full-time job, although he’s recently started working as a delivery driver which is bringing in a small amount of income. He’s applied for 9 jobs since he was dismissed, but has been unsuccessful.

Reuben keeps note of his efforts to find new work and the earnings he’s had, using our mitigation of losses template.


Ximena is making a claim for disability discrimination and constructive dismissal.

She is claiming that she’s lost 12 months’ worth of wages as a result of being constructively dismissed. She applied for a few jobs shortly after resigning but was unsuccessful. She then fell ill which meant she was unable to continue looking for roles.

Ximena keeps note of her job applications and responses, and the evidence around her sickness, using our mitigation of losses template.


How to show your mitigation of losses for an Employment Tribunal:

As soon as possible when you make an Employment Tribunal claim, start thinking about how you can mitigate your losses and demonstrate to the Tribunal that you’ve tried to do this. You should:  

  1. create the template
  2. keep the template updated throughout your Tribunal case
  3. send the document and evidence to the Respondent at the disclosure stage
  4. make sure there is a copy in the Hearing Bundle
  5. refer the Tribunal to this if you win your case, to help them to decide how much compensation to award to you.

Save time, reduce stress and ensure your claim has the best chance of success

What our customers say about us

Excellent low-cost employment tribunal guidance

I have just won my employment tribunal case for unfair dismissal, and I'm not sure if I would have been able to do it without Valla! Katie and Danae were absolutely brilliant in helping me prepare for the tribunal, prepare certain documents, and help me to feel confident in my case! I would highly recommend Valla to anyone who is representing themselves in an employment tribunal case! 10/10 for me!


Valla are excellent

I genuinely believe they helped guide me to the best possible outcome for my specific circumstances. They are a choir of angels; I wouldn't have been able to consider going through the processes involved with my experience without their support.


If I didn’t get help from Valla, I couldn’t go forward with the case.

The confidence they gave me is beyond description.
