Employment - Employment tribunal - Costs - Adverse costs order warning - Appropriateness.
An employment tribunal should only make costs warnings where there was a real risk that an order for costs would be made against an unsuccessful applicant at the end of the hearing. It had to be particularly careful not to place unfair pressure on a litigant in person who, unlike a party who was legally represented, had no opportunity for his representative to put any remarks by the tribunal in context by explaining the circumstances in which a tribunal was entitled to make a costs order.
