Application for a witness order

When to use a witness order in the employment tribunal?

A witness order is made by the employment tribunal to compel a person to attend a hearing as a witness. In the civil courts it is called a witness summons and it is a criminal offence not to attend the hearing without reasonable excuse if you receive a witness order or summons. An application for a witness order must be made in writing to the employment tribunal. 

Use this template to apply to the employment tribunal for a witness order for reluctant witnesses such as colleagues who are afraid to be witnesses because they are still working for your employer.

  3. Send a copy to the other side and let the employment tribunal know that you have copied them in.
  4. The employment tribunal will acknowledge receipt immediately, but you must wait for a letter or email that confirms whether or not your application for adjournment or postponement is agreed.
