Fast track for tribunal claims

The Government has announced in Hansard that it proposes to develop a fast-track system for employment tribunals to deal with simple monetary claims.

This 'fast-track system' will involve five jurisdictions: unlawful deductions from wages claims; breach of contract claims; redundancy pay claims; holiday pay claims; national minimum wage claims. It is likely that employment judges will sit alone to determine such claims, without the assistance of wing members.

[Thanks to for allowing me to use their summary.]
