Industrial Tribunal Research

The way it works

The Industrial Tribunal Office at Bury St Edmunds is the only location in the UK where information is held on all judgments in respect of Industrial Tribunal cases.

Information is no longer available on new or ongoing matters. Previously it was possible to obtain information on new Claimants and Defendants, virtually on a daily basis or as and when the claim was instigated. The Industrial Tribunal Office would not offer the information over the telephone so it was necessary to use an agent to attend and research the information required. Various entities would use Ely Consultants and others to obtain information on new proceedings. Those instructing would then contact the Claimants or Defendants to offer their services. The Industrial Tribunal Office no longer offers this particular information.

Information on previous cases (judgments) is however still available. Only by attending at the Industrial Tribunal Office can such information be researched either using the databases or by delving into the archives manually.

How we can help and why

We at Ely Consultants are familiar with the database and filing systems used at the Industrial Tribunal Office and regularly attend to obtain information required by clients. We are familiar with the software utilised and how records are filed and archived. Staff at the Industrial Tribunal Office are always on hand and are helpful and friendly to us.

So why would you want us to go there?

There are many reasons why information held at The Industrial Tribunal Office may be needed, ours is not to reason why but we give two common reasons as below.

Example 1: Defend yourself!

If a company/employer has a person who has taken out a claim against them, it may be worthwhile in defence to know if that person has previously been taken out a claim and what the outcome was. A detailed written report from Ely Consultants will provide all information available at The Industrial Tribunal Office depending how much information is required.

Example 2: It wasn't me!

A company/employer might wish to prove to a prospective client, buyer, for reasons of a merger/takeover or due diligence that they have never been involved in an Industrial Tribunal Claim. A detailed report from Ely Consultants will provide proof that no such claim has been made.

Should it be required at a later date, Ely Consultants will if requested attend at any Court or Hearing to give evidence, subject to agreed costs at that time.

So what does it cost?

Well actually not a lot! We will attend at The Industrial Tribunal Office to obtain the information required for an hourly fee of £40.00 plus VAT. We do not charge for traveling or mileage as The Industrial Tribunal Office is only 12 miles from our Head Office. There may be parking charges at some point but presently parking at The Industrial Tribunal Office is free. We make no additional charges for preparing our reports but there are nominal costs for photocopying carried out at The Industrial Tribunal Office

.An important point:

Our invoice will refer to Consultancy Services and can contain as much or as little information necessary so that administration or accounting staff will not know (or will know) what enquires have been conducted and why.
