Hopefully no-one is telling customers to appeal direct to the VT when they make the initial decision! We’ve never done that and always set out that the initial challenge has to come to us.

Practically, how many cases will you get where the VT notify an appeal but there has been no s16 grievance/reconsideration? I think that’s the thing. In those few occasions I think you’re right, an email to the VT explaining no grievance has been received and that should be the end of it. We use an electronic document system, so it should be easy to show.

I have a hearing on 22 May so I may pick the Clerk’s brain about it.
