The Con Dem government suggests that fees should be introduced for claimants taking employment tribunal cases. It also proposed to increase the qualifying period before workers can make a claim from one to two years.
It hopes to slash the record 236,000 claims. A spokesman said: “We’ve heard loud and clear concerns from businesses that the system has become too costly, takes too much time and that it is too easy to make unmerited claims.”
Institute of Employment Rights described the proposals as a ‘double whammy’ against British workers who already suffer from weak employment laws and bad bosses.
Another broken pledge from the Con Dems.
