03 Jul EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL CLAIMS. LITIGANTS IN PERSON
Together, we can stand and support each other. United, we can hold hands with each other and stand up against inequality forever. We’re all humans and we must do what we can to protect our democracy so that we can live without fear of injustice.
The justice system is vital for ensuring a safe environment for everyone and resolving disputes in an orderly way. The disadvantages faced by litigants in person stem from their lack of knowledge of the law and tribunal procedure. They fail to choose the best course of action defence and subsequently, present their points in the Tribunal. Civil legal aid is no longer available for either advice or representation in employment law matters, including discrimination claims under the Equality Act 2010.
The Employment Tribunal defence system favours the employers. Therefore, those who can afford legal representation reap the benefits. Those who cannot afford proper representation suffer the most injustice in a system that is meant to provide hope. As long as we turn a blind eye to the injustice litigants in person endure, we shall never achieve open justice as a society. Litigants in person lack the income necessary to pay for legal interventions against unjust treatment. The Employment Tribunal law is inaccessible because it is expensive and complex.
This entire journey has left me feeling violated, demeaned, and humiliated after being subjected to a campaign of disinformation, bullying, and harassment that went on for five years including blackmail because I refused to accept a settlement agreement with gagging clauses to protect powerful individuals.
The most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do was to leave behind the nights of terror and fear in order to rise and bring forward the gifts that my ancestors gave to me. I am the dream and the hope of individuals who have suffered emotional and psychological damage as a result of their experiences, which can affect their ability to work and move on.
I always look at it as the one event that has had the biggest positive impact in my life so far. Without suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), I wouldn’t be as self-assured and happy as I am today as I sought help from clinical psychologists . I would never have started writing again, which has led me down an incredible path.
I hope to have inspired you to assist me in this fight for justice. I want to do what I can with my unfortunate experience to help those in the future.
