Protect Your Business Against Rising Employment Tribunal Claims

With employment tribunal cases set to rise, speak to an expert today!

The chances of one of your employees making an employment tribunal claim against you just got significantly higher.

On Wednesday 26th July 2017, the Supreme Court ruled that tribunal fees are unlawful and a barrier to justice, abolishing them with immediate effect.

As a result of this ruling, if an employee feels that you, as an employer, have treated them unfairly, there is nothing to stop them making a claim against you, which could have a devastating effect on your business.

You need to act now to protect yourself and your organisation, especially when considering that all tribunal judgements are now published publically.

However, one positive point for employers: if you lost a claim since 2013 and had to reimburse your employee’s fees, you are due a refund. Call us today on 0808 145 3377 to learn more.

 

Are you at Risk?

Have you dismissed someone in the last three months? Do you have any ongoing disciplinaries or grievances? Are you sure that your employment documentation is up to date?

It’s more important now than ever to ensure your decisions and practices are correct and follow the right procedures, leaving no room for an employee to raise a case.

What it means to you

This development is set to significantly affect thousands of organisations. Employers must take action now and exercise caution, especially because:

  • Employees no longer have a financial barrier preventing them from making a claim against you.
  • If you have bent the law over the last few years taking a chance that your employee can’t afford the fee, you’re now at an extremely higher risk of facing a claim.
  • Expect more ‘have a go’ claims. Employees may take a chance on a weak case to get what they want from you.
  • The early conciliation system (where ACAS tries to settle disputes before it becomes a claim) will continue to weed out vexatious claims, but cannot stop everything.
