Employment Tribunal Statistics
11 September 2014
The latest employment tribunal statistics appear to indicate that the introduction of compulsory Acas Early Conciliation on 6th May 2014 has had a significant impact.
Thanks to Daniel Barnett for his analysis of the statistics for tribunals for the April to June 2014 period which have just been released by the Ministry of Justice.
He notes that
· the figures reveal a 71% drop in claims (70% in single claims) compared with the same period in 2013,
· a more significant statistic is that single claims are down one-third on the last quarter (Jan-Mar 2014), which is probably in large part due to the introduction of compulsory Acas Early Conciliation on 6th May 2014 (it was voluntary from 6th April).
