Reforming The Employment Tribunal System

Closed 20 Jan 2017

Opened 5 Dec 2016

Overview

The Government seeks views on the issues to be considered when implementing the wider justice system reform principles in the Employment Tribunal system.  Views from all users of the system are particularly welcome, and responses from representatives and advisors of individuals and business, the legal profession, non-legal members and the judiciary are particularly encouraged.

Why We Are Consulting

This is a joint consultation by the Department  for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Ministry of Justice.

It sets out where specific changes to primary legislation are needed to make sure that the planned reforms can be successfully and appropriately implemented in Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. It seeks views on what factors should be considered when amending this legislation and in taking work forward to reform the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

We would welcome your views on the issues to be considered when implementing the wider justice system reform principles in the Employment Tribunal system in a way which enables the positive benefits that change will bring, but does not lose the strengths of the current Employment Tribunal system.
