What is a Pre-Hearing Review?

Often during the tribunal process there are mini hearings on specific aspects of the case which parties agree, or the Tribunal orders must be dealt with before the final hearing takes place. These mini hearings are called Pre Hearing Reviews.

Issues decided at Pre Hearing Reviews can include matters such as whether the claim has been brought in time, whether the case has a reasonable prospect of success, whether the Claimant satisfies the conditions to be a disabled person within the meaning of the Equality Act or whether there is to be a deposit paid into court to cover the event of the Claimant losing.

Pre Hearing Reviews tend to last for a couple of hours up to a day; they tend not to last more than one day since they are only supposed to be considering a narrow issue which must be decided before the case goes through.
