Jonathan Djanogly highlights benefits to small businesses of employment tribunal fees


14th June 2016

Jonathan Djanogly highlights the welcome impact of employment tribunal fees on reducing the threat of litigation hanging over small businesses and thereby contributing to the resurgence of our economy and job creation.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)
Does the Minister agree that employment tribunal fees have played an important part in reducing the threat of litigation that hangs over businesses, and particularly small businesses? Does he agree that they have also played an important part in the resurgence of our economy and job creation?

Mr Raab
My hon. Friend has a lot of experience of this issue, and he is absolutely right to look at its dual impact, particularly on small businesses. However, it is also right to say that this is not a binary, zero-sum game, and we attach huge importance to the fact that early conciliation has been used by more than 80,000 litigants in the first year, with over 80% of those participating reporting that they were satisfied with the outcome.
