Employment 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.
