Decrease in Employment Tribunals

The Employment Tribunals' annual statistics have just been published and the headline news is a fall of 8% in the number of claims received between April 2010 and March 2011, as compared to the previous 12 months.

Interestingly, the number of claims in relation to part time workers has nearly tripled in the same period and age discrimination claims have risen by 32%.

It's really important that employers seek advice to ensure they avoid age discrimination claims.  If you do find yourself involved in an Employment Tribunal claim, speak to a lawyer at the earliest opportunity..
