Tribunals letter and template examples

These templates are the details of claims for the  ’ET1′ employment tribunals claim forms. So when you want to issue a claim in the employment tribunal, you need to fill out an ET1 form. Most people just fill in the details on the form itself, but lawyers and other people in the know actually use a separate Word or PDF document to set out the claim details. This is technically known as a ‘particulars of claim’ document.

The online ET1 form can be quite tricky to use so you may prefer the postal version, but we have written a short guide on how to use the online form here. The templates listed below are beautifully crafted examples of the types of detail you should be including in your claim. This should allow you to chop and change and take inspiration and confidence to put together your own claim document.
