The Employment Tribunal Project is part of the HMCTS Reform Programme which has a vision to modernise the justice system to make it more straightforward, accessible and efficient.  As part of this project, the Employment Tribunal now have four offices (known as our reform early adopter sites) who are piloting the new service and features as they are developed. Our four offices are Bristol, Leeds and Nottingham  in England and Wales and Glasgow for Scotland.


MyHMCTS is a service available for professional legal organisations to interact with HMCTS.  This is now live and available for our Employment Tribunal users with cases in the reformed early adopter sites. The service enables you to submit an ET3 response as well as submit applications to the Tribunal using the service.


We wanted to reach out to you to inform you the service is now available and would welcome you taking part if you have cases which are eligible. Any cases which are eligible for the service, within the ET1 served documents, a leaflet is enclosed informing the Respondent that MyHMCTS can be used with a specific 16 digit reference number.


For solicitors in England or Wales, to register for MyHMCTS you will need to ensure you have your SRA number to hand. Solicitors in Scotland will need to provide their Law Society of Scotland certificate.


Here are two YouTube videos demonstrating on how to use the service and submit an ET3 response and another on how to submit applications. Details on how to register onto MyHMCTS is here.


We would greatly appreciate your support in making MyHMCTS the preferred channel for professionals when interacting with the tribunal.
