How to prepare a scott schedule for a victimisation claim
In a discrimination claim, the Employment Judge may ask you to provide a schedule detailing the discriminatory claim or claims you are complaining of in accordance with the relevant statutory test in the Equality Act 2010. This schedule is called a Scott Schedule and is usually a precursor to another preliminary hearing where the Employment Judge is going to consider whether your claims are out of time and whether your claims fall within the requirements of the Equality Act. Any claim that does not meet the requirements will be struck out, or you could be asked to pay a deposit order of up to £1000 for each allegation, in order to continue.
