Employment Tribunal Statistics 2009/10

The Tribunal Annual Statistics were published last week, and they make for interesting reading. The key findings are:-

• 56% increase from 2008/09 in the number of claims accepted by Employment Tribunals, which were at their highest ever level. This is mainly attributable to multiple claims.
• There was a 14% increase in the number of single claims accepted by Employment Tribunals.
• There was a 17% increase in the number of tribunal claims associated with unfair dismissal, breach of contract and redundancy. This is likely to be caused by the economic recession.
• There was a 22% increase in the number of disposals by Employment Tribunals. This did not keep pace with receipts with the result that more than 400,000 claims remained outstanding.
• There was a significant drop in the number of Employment Tribunal claims in which the first hearing took place within 26 weeks of the claim being received. It fell from 74% to just 65%.

Can you afford for your business to be involved in one of the 400,000 claims that remain outstanding? The cost to your business could be damaging – not forgetting the time you would need to spend in preparation and the hearing itself, which could last several days.
