Tribunal Judges Sitting Alone in Unfair Dismissal Cases

The draft Employment Tribunals Act 1996 (Composition) Order 2012 has been published, expected to come into force on 6th April 2012.

It enables (as the presumed default) employment judges to sit alone in unfair dismissal cases - all part of the process of speeding up and reducing the cost of the tribunal system.

Here's a post I wrote a year ago on the issue of tribunal judges sitting alone.

Your 3.8m savings (direct cost) equate to £391.75 pence per case when spread over your 9,700 cases. (Adding in admin cost is government clutching at straws). Yes Government needs to behave prudently with the public purse but not undermine justice as the intention appears to be with the introduction of fees; excuse on that one being it'll create employment!! Baloney!
