What are Case Management Orders?
Case Management Orders (“CMOs”) are timetables, set by the Employment Tribunal, that provide deadlines for the production of documents that will progress the case. For example, a CMO may provide a deadline for the Claimant to disclose their Schedule of Loss to the Respondent, or for the parties to exchange witness statements. Such deadlines are usually decided by the Judge at a Case Management/ Preliminary Hearing.
In the High Court, similar orders are made at Case Management Conferences.
A failure to comply with CMOs, or orders made at Case Management Conference, can result in cost orders, or in the most severe cases, the Employment Tribunal or High Court can order that the claim, or response, be struck out.
