The launch of the “resolving workplace disputes” consultation by the Department for Innovation, Business and Skills (BIS) is described as being the next step in the Governments comprehensive review of employment laws. In reality the consultation sketches out a roadmap to fundamentally change the current tribunal system into a more business friendly model.

Proposals include: charging fees; increasing the cap on costs awards; increasing the level of deposit awards; and removing payments for the expenses of witness. These proposals will not go down well with Claimants and Unions alike; who will no doubt view them as putting barriers in the way of access to justice.
