The Ministry of Justice has confirmed an increase of 90% in the number of single Employment Tribunal claims received in the period October to December 2017 (compared to the same quarter in 2016). This follows the Supreme Court decision in July 2017 that Employment Tribunal fees were unlawful because they prevented access to justice.

 

Now that fees are no longer charged in order to lodge a claim, there appears to be less of a barrier to employees bringing claims, which underlines the importance of golf clubs ensuring that they comply with employment law and procedures when dealing with their staff.
