Law Society calls for Employment Tribunal Reforms

  • Posted

The Law Society has published a discussion document, Making Employment Tribunals Work For All.

The main proposals are:-

· all employment law disputes should be dealt with in a single jurisdiction consisting of four levels.
· claims should be dealt with flexibly, depending on their intricacy and the financial stakes involved.
· simple cases, such as handling unpaid wages claims should be dealt with on a paper basis in Level 1.
· more complex cases, such as multi-strand discrimination cases or restrictive covenants, should be heard by an experienced judge in Level 4.
