A No Show is a Big No

The Workplace Relations Commission have released statistics revealing that a huge of 35% of employment tribunal cases are “no-shows”.

Employers failure to attend Employment Appeals Tribunal hearings is becoming a somewhat common occurrence and is extremely risky. This coupled with a tribunal’s annoyance that the employer didn’t show up will no doubt end up in the employee winning an award that the employer will be legally obliged to pay.

In a recent case where an employer failed to attend a hearing the employee was awarded €55,000 based on uncontested evidence.

If you are facing a tribunal case, the advice is to attend!
