Debunking the myths about tribunal fees

30 Jul 2013, by Guest in Equality

I’ve got a new post over at left foot forward debunking the many myths used to justify the employment tribunal fees that came into effect yesterday.

As a post-script to that blog, check out this report from today’s mirror:

Nearly half of bosses in 1,000 firms – some 47% – say it will put off people  with genuine claims and one in four (24.9%) say it will only benefit firms who  have treated employees unfairly – as workers will be deterred by the cost from  seeking justice.

Asked what impact it would have on their businesses, fewer than one in three  (28.8%) said it would be positive by making sure they only have to deal with  genuine claims from workers.

Even employers think the fees are too much.
