The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

14% of tribunal claims advanced


Just 14% of valid claims are being taken forward by people at employment tribunals following the introduction of fees to pursue a claim, new figures show. 

Citizens Advice said that since the Government introduced fees of up to £1,200 last July there has been a 73% drop in claims compared to the same period the previous year.

Despite this, millions are still logging onto Citizens Advice’s website in need of help with employment matters, up 42% on last year, while tribunal searches have increased by 54%.

The charity is calling for a review of the system.

Its analysis found that four out of five cases had a 50/50 chance or higher of success if they were pursued to tribunal, but less than a third (31%) of the potential success cases were likely or definite to proceed to tribunal.
