(For parties responding to the claims) Do I have to attend the mediation when I disagree with the claims?

Last updated 14 Oct 2021

Yes. Mediation is for both the employer and employee to address the claims and to support any assertions with evidence.

If you fail to attend mediation (be it in-person or online), a Claim Referral Certificate (CRC) may be issued to the claimant to pursue the claim further at the Employment Claims Tribunals (ECT), which is part of State Courts.
