New Law Society proposals for Employment Tribunals

The Law Society has published their document of reforms, Making Employment Tribunals Work for All.

The proposals

The Law Society is proposing to split claims into four levels.

It proposes to have simple claims at Level 1 and decided on a paper basis, with Level 4 cases deciding employment law matters, such as restrictive covenants, normally dealt with in the civil courts.

It wants one jurisdiction for all employment claims, so they’re are not split between the Tribunals and the County Courts.

What this means for you

The impact of the proposals is yet to be seen. But it’s an interesting 25-page document that could change how employment claims are dealt with.

So we’ll follow the consultation with interest!
