EMPLOYMENT CLAIMS: Tribunals in peril

01 April 2016  

Proposals to integrate employment tribunals into the court system and scrap lay members are misguided, argues Stephen Levinson

This article examines two recent developments in the world of employment tribunals. First, the proposal to strip these tribunals of their special identity, as made by Briggs LJ in his interim report on the civil justice system published in December. Second, the new regulations, described as unnecessary by the Employment Lawyers Association and most consultees, which will come into force on 6 April 2016 on postponements of hearings.
