Debunking the myths about tribunal fees
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.
