The purpose of the Employment and Discrimination Tribunal (Procedure) (Jersey) Order 2016 (the ‘Order’) is to set out statutory procedures in relation to the conduct of proceedings before the Employment and Discrimination Tribunal (the ‘Tribunal’). This will replace the current non-statutory procedures of the Tribunal.

The Order sets out procedures including for the presentation of claims and responses, the grounds for rejecting claims and responses, counterclaims, matters that the Tribunal will deal with before the hearing, such as the initial consideration of a claim and case management, the procedures for hearings including for witnesses, interim hearings and final hearings, the Tribunal’s decisions and reasons for those decisions, and for the delivery of documents to the Tribunal.
