Protect yourself! Tribunal claims are on the increase…

Annual Employment Tribunal statistics for the year ending 31 March 2013 have now been published – click here to view them. They show that the number of tribunal claims brought this year increased slightly to 191,541 from 186,331 in 2011/2012, although this number is still significantly lower than the 218,096 claims lodged in 2010/2011.

The main areas of increase were in claims for unfair dismissal (up 6%), a failure to inform and consult in collective redundancy situations (up 39%), and for sex discrimination (up 75%). Interestingly, despite the uncertainty caused by the removal of the default retirement age in 2011, claims for age discrimination have fallen for the second successive year.
