Procedure adopted by Employment Tribunal on costs application at the conclusion of the substantive hearing unfair in circumstances where paying party self-represented and substantial costs sought; EAT ruled it will usually be appropriate to adjourn the costs hearing for party against whom costs order sought to be given proper opportunity to consider the costs application, any costs schedule produced and any evidence he wishes to adduce as to his means. The application for costs can then proceed by way of written submissions, unless either party requests an oral hearing.
