Jonathan Djanogly welcomes drop in employment tribunal claims


8th September 2015

Jonathan Djanogly welcomes drop in employment tribunal claims which has helped small businesses that were sometime dragged through the tribunals process for no cause other than that the process was free for the claimant.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): Does my hon. Friend agree that the more than 75% reduction in employment claims since fees were introduced shows how this Government are standing up for small business that have become exasperated by being repeatedly dragged through the tribunals, sometimes for no cause other than that the process was free for the claimant?

Caroline Dinenage: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point, and I very much agree. Fewer people are making tribunal claims. It is only fair that those who can afford to make some contribution to the cost of the service they receive should do so. It cannot be right that hard-working taxpayers should pick up the entire bill of around £71 million for employment disputes in tribunals.
