Unless Order

Rule 38(1) of the Employment Tribunal Rules 2013 says that an order made by the Employment Tribunal can state that unless it is complied with by a specified date, the claim or response (or part of it) will be dismissed. This is known as an “unless order”. Basically, unless you do what the tribunal has asked you to do by the date that the tribunal has given you, your case (or your employer’s response) will be thrown out. Unless orders are usually made when people don’t conduct their cases reasonably or don’t comply with case management orders.
