6. If you lose your case

You can ask the tribunal to reconsider the decision (or ‘judgment’) if you lose your case.

You must write to the tribunal office within 14 days of getting the decision, saying why you want it to be reconsidered.

You also need to give good reasons, eg:

  • the tribunal made a mistake in the way it reached its decision
  • you weren’t told about the hearing, or weren’t at the hearing
  • there’s new evidence

Send your letter to the tribunal office that dealt with your case.

You may need to pay a fee.
