Employment Law Reforms

Chancellor George Osborne has announced two major changes to Employment Law cases that he hopes will reduce the number of employment tribunal claims and boost the economy.

Firstly the qualifying period for unfair dismissal will be increased from one year to two years with effect from 1 April 2012.

Secondly fees will be introduced for tribunal claims, namely:

·         An issue fee of £250

·         A further fee of £1,000 when the claim is listed for hearing

·         Higher fees if the claim is over £30,000

·         Fees to be refunded if the Claimant wins and forfeited if they lose

·         Fees to be waived where the Claimant has no money
