Although it is important that employees and former employees have easy access to Employment Tribunals a change should be made to require applicants to pay a deposit that wouldl be refunded in the event that their claim succeeds. This would be similar to the requirement for a deposit for claims before a small claims court.

 

 

Why is this idea important?

This change would reduce spurious employment tribunal claims and thereby save public monies for processing claims and also save business from having to deal with and arrange defences for a significant number of claims. As government is itself a significant employer there would be substantial public sector savings as well as a reduction in bureaucracy for all employers
