tribunal appeal pack arrived today 1 year 1 week ago #168187

i called the tribunal service asked if they had enough information to do a paper hearing
they said yes and asked why i couldn't attend
i'm having chest problems at the minute struggling to breath i visited drs he prescribed steroids and antibiotics
i asked if they wanted proof they said no but took my number in case they need to ask any questions . they didn't call
hope it hasn't gone against me . i wanted to attend but couldn't stand the wait for a new date its been 9 months and i wanted it over with

after asking if it was ok for me not to attend as I'm ill I asked if they need a note from dr where I attended they said no but took my number and said if the tribunal need to ask anything they will phone but will go ahead in my absence .
this in mind
I called today to see what had happened they told me the tribunal had adjourned my case and had set another date and I would get a letter in the post to reply too ?
I asked why they didn't go ahead and was told I will receive a letter ?
why would this happen ?
I feel numb
can anyone say why they do this
cheer's

I can only guess that the panel don't feel that they can make a decision without seeing you themselves.

Just to add, you can still request a Paper hearing. The Judge is required by law to offer you the best hearing that the panel can provide, if there are matters that they feel would be best answered by direct questioning then they are obliged to offer an Oral hearing.
