Is your business at risk of an Employment Tribunal claim?

In a monumental ruling in July 2017, the Supreme Court, the highest Court in the UK, decided to abolish Employment Tribunal fees.  This decision will almost certainly take its place in history as one of the most significant decisions in the field of employment law for decades.  Whereas previously, disgruntled employees were required to pay a fee of up to £1,200 to bring a claim against their employer at the Employment Tribunal – they can now bring a claim FREE OF CHARGE.  And what’s more, this can now be done online in a matter of minutes.

Some businesses fail to comply with employment law, at least some of the time. This failure can do untold reputational and financial damage to a business. Compensation for unfair dismissal claims can exceed £80k – whilst awards for discrimination and whistleblowing are unlimited. Moreover, with the government’s recent decision to publish details of Employment Tribunal cases online, and the increased use of social media – such as Facebook and Twitter – the reputation of a business is at risk like never before.

Because of these risks to business, you may have noticed a huge rise in Employment Law and HR Consultancy firms in recent years. These – often unregulated – firms invest vast sums of money in sales and marketing. However, employment law is notoriously complex – and the truth is that many of these firms are cutting costs by recruiting unqualified staff, providing their clients with advice and documentation that is ‘one-size-fits-all’ – and tying them into lengthy contracts.
