Judgment delivery time
Ask about delayed judgments
If you are concerned about a delay in the delivery of a reserved judgment, you can ask the registrar by a letter or email.
Please include the following details:
- the name of the proceedings and the file number
- your role in the proceedings (such as plaintiff/defendant or legal representative for the first plaintiff/second defendant)
- the date on which the judge reserved the judgment or the last submissions were filed, whichever is the later date.
The registrar will give you an indication in writing as to when the judgment is likely to be released. The judge won’t be told who has asked.
The table below shows the time to judgment in the Employment Court for judgments delivered in the years since 2012.
|Year||Delivered within 1 month of conclusion of hearing||Delivered within 3 months of conclusion of hearing||Delivered more than 3 months after conclusion of hearing||Total judgments delivered|
