A number of key changes to ET practice and procedure have been published this month. This blog addresses the headline changes introduced by The Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) (Early Conciliation: Exemptions and Rules of Procedure) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 (“the Regulations”) which were laid before Parliament on 17 September 2020. In the main, these changes are measures designed to ameliorate the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, and to keep the wheels of justice turning. They are to be welcomed by practitioners and ET users alike.
