Tribunal awards are registered following a tribunal decision which results in a sum of money being payable. Details of an award are only added to the Register once steps have been taken in the high court or county court to enforce the tribunal decision.
The tribunal awards section contains awards from the First-tier Tribunals, the Upper Tribunals, Employment Tribunals or Employment Appeal Tribunals.
There is a fast track process to assist with enforcement in situations where an applicant has been successful at an Employment Tribunal but has not received the payment from the respondent.
If a respondent defaults the payment, the claimant can complete an Enforcement Form and send this to us together with the documents and applicable court fee referenced on the Form.
Registry Trust will allocate a High Court Enforcement Officer; the officer will arrange for a writ of control to be issued and then attempt to recover the monies owed.
