What is Interim Relief?

Interim relief is a form of remedy granted in automatically unfair dismissal claims, such as  claims in which it is asserted that whistleblowing caused the dismissal. The purpose of obtaining interim relief is that it orders the employer to continue employing the employee (or if it is unwilling to employ them, to continue paying their salary) until the case is finally determined at trial.

Tactically, interim relief enables the Claimant to fund the ongoing litigation and places pressure on the employer to settle the claim at an early stage of proceedings. However, in practice, interim relief is rarely granted by the Employment Tribunal.
