If the Respondent does not make an application to dismiss, or if they do and it is denied, then your complaint will be scheduled for a hearing.
The Tribunal will schedule a telephone case conference to discuss hearing dates with you and the Respondent. On this call, you can also ask for any accommodations you may need for the hearing, like interpreters or audio-visual equipment.
Since the pandemic, most hearings happen by video. You can request an in-person hearing if you need to.
The Tribunal will send you a letter telling you when you must file a list of witnesses, a list of the remedies you want, and a list of documents that relate to the remedy.
Prepare to tell your story. Decide what evidence you will rely on to make your case. Write out the questions you will ask the respondent and their witnesses.
Hearings are generally open to the public. Consider watching another Tribunal hearing to find out more about what to expect.
The Tribunal has some helpful resources and checklists for preparing for a hearing on its website.
