United Kingdom -Big drop in justice seeking -March 14, 2014

The number of employment tribunal cases has fallen by 79% since the government introduced fees. The Ministry of Justice has published tribunal quarterly statistics for the period September to December 2013, which show that employment tribunal cases have dropped to 9,801 from 45,710 for the same period in 2012.The TUC stated that the figures show that introducing fees for tribunal cases has stopped many people seeking justice. According to the trade union no one will believe that the workplaces have got fairer overnight. Too many bosses are getting away with treating staff badly, confident that the government is on their side.
