New Employment Tribunal Rules Commencement Dates - not 25th June after all!

  • Posted

Yesterday, BIS issued a press release saying that the rules for "simplifying the procedures and costs of deciding tribunal cases" will come into force on 25th June 2013. 

According to an email I have received this afternoon from BIS, that doesn't actually mean the new tribunal procedural rules are coming into force on 25th June.

BIS state that "Discussions are still continuing in Whitehall about the implementation of the new rules of procedure - we want to do what makes the most sense in terms of the administration of the system. It is Government's aim, however to give users of the system as much familiarisation time for the new rules as possible." 

So that's clear. Enjoy the weekend, everyone.
