Parties will have a chance to settle their dispute on the e-Negotiation platform without coming to Court.
Either party to a claim may initiate the E-Negotiation process by logging on to CJTS and clicking the e-service "E-Negotiation".
Each party has 5 rounds of offers to make in the negotiation. If no settlement is reached, parties are to attend the consultation date and time.
If a settlement is reached…
- Parties may apply to have the agreed terms recorded as a consent order by clicking "Request for Order of Tribunal". The application for a consent order is subject to the Tribunal's approval.
- The claimant may withdraw the claim. When a claim is withdrawn, the matter will be taken as concluded and there will be no further proceedings at the Tribunals. A claimant can withdraw a claim by choosing the e-service "Withdrawal Request Form" in CJTS.
If a settlement cannot be reached, or if an application for a consent order is not approved by the Tribunals, parties will have to attend the Consultation at the Tribunals as stated in the Notice of Consultation.
