Innovation plan published for the modernisation of tribunals

Makbool Javaid

The Senior President of the Tribunals has published an innovation plan for the modernisation of employment tribunals in 2019-2020. The three key initiatives planned for 2019 are: (1) to give judges, panel members and users access to a digital case record and provide judges and case workers with the facility to case manage online; (2) identify and provide the digital evidence presentation needs and the live video hearing needs of the users and judicial office holders; and (3)  to digitally record all hearings to provide one of the means by which open access to justice i.e. the scrutiny of public hearings, is facilitated and provide a record independent of the judge and panel members which is capable, where appropriate, of transcription.
