Employment Tribunal Judgment - Reform Required
The CBI has responded to the Supreme Court judgment on employment tribunal fees.
Neil Carberry, CBI Managing Director for People and Infrastructure, said:
"The CBI has long held the view that the current Employment Tribunal fees regime is flawed and should be reformed.
"Access to justice is essential and must be protected. There is an important role for a proportionate fee that acts as an incentive to ensure that going to tribunal is always a last resort, but that does not require the high fees introduced in 2013. We hope the government swiftly brings forward an alternative approach.
"More broadly, action is needed to return employment tribunals to their original vision - a speedy, fair, informal and affordable for both workers and businesses."
