Letter to the other side for disclosure of documents
Why you need the template letter to the other side for disclosure of documents
You may need particular documents which you know the other side has in their possession and they have not disclosed, or they may have only disclosed partial information. The correct employment tribunal procedure is to first write to the other side asking for the documents. Use this template letter to ask the other side to provide particular documents. If they dont, you can then make an application to the Employment Tribunal for disclosure using the Template application for disclosure of information.
How to use the template letter for disclosure of documents
- Make sure to read the guidance that comes with the template before you complete it.
- Email your application to the other side with the subject, your case name and number on the subject line.
- There is no need to send a copy to the employment tribunal at this point.
- If the other side does not provide the information requested, escalate to an employment tribunal application for an order for disclosure.
- Include this letter to show the employment tribunal that you have asked the other side to voluntarily provide the information, and they have not done so.
- Follow up by email if you have not heard from the employment tribunal within a reasonable period after sending your application. If you follow up by phone, still send an email reiterating that you have followed up by phone.
