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.

How to respond to any applications your employer makes in a Tribunal

Your employer may make a number of different applications throughout your Tribunal case. You will have the option to respond to these applications before the Tribunal makes a decision. Use a Response to Application Made by Respondent template to respond to any Employment Tribunal applications made by your employer clearly and effectively.

Examples of when a Response to Application Made by Respondent template is useful

There are many situations where your employer may make an application that you’ll need to respond to, for example:


The Respondent in Owen’s Employment Tribunal claim has made an application for an extension of time to submit their ET3.

Owen does not agree that an extension is necessary in the circumstances. He sends the Tribunal a response to the Respondent’s application, objecting to it and copying them in.


The Respondent in Raphael’s Employment Tribunal claim has made an application for the Final Hearing to be held remotely.

Raphael thinks this would be a sensible approach, especially as he lives in a rural area and so getting to the physical Tribunal hearing location would be a challenge.

He sends the Tribunal a response to the Respondent’s application, agreeing to it and copying them in.


How to use a Response to Application Made by Respondent letter template

If your employer has made an application to the Tribunal, you’ll need to craft an appropriate response. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. write your letter
  2. send the response letter or email to the Tribunal
  3. copy in the Respondent
  4. wait for the Tribunal to confirm their decision on the application
  5. chase the Tribunal by phone if you don’t hear from them.

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

What our customers say about us

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.


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!


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

The confidence they gave me is beyond description.


Why use Valla?

A law firm can cost anywhere from an initial consultation fee of £200 to £35,000+ plus VAT for Tribunal representation.

Valla offers users low-cost alternatives to pricey law firms. We can help guide you through the process and generate legal documents for your use.

Lawyers can be expensive. But access to justice doesn’t have to be.
