Hi

I won one claim and lost another claim both brought at the same time for the same problem. I was thinking of lodging an appeal. I was wondering if anyone coud provide some answers.....

1. Do I just bring appeal only on the claim I lost and not the one I won?
2. If I bring an appeal are both the claims looked at again e.g. the claim I won is reviewed and in appeal I lose but claim I lost I now win this time?
3. How long does getting appeal heard really take e.g. 1 year, 2 years ?
4. What are the costs involved?
5. Any other advice?

Thanks

1. Yes. You can't appeal the claim you won, only the claim you lost. Note that you can't appeal just because you disagree with the decision. You have to show that the tribunal got the law wrong, or failed to follow the correct procedure, or had no evidence to support its decision, or was unfairly biased.

2. No. Only the claim that you lost will be looked at unless your ex-employer appeals the claim you won.

3. Looking at recent judgements suggests around 1 year.

4. £400 to lodge the appeal and a further £1200 if there is a full hearing.
