Labour Party Announcement on Employment Tribunals
09 September 2014
Speaking at TUC Congress, Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna has announced that the next Labour Government will "scrap" the Government’s employment tribunal system and replace it with "a fairer system to ensure that affordability is not a barrier to employees seeking redress in the workplace."
Labour will undertake wider reform of the tribunals system, ensuring it works in a more streamlined and less bureaucratic way for both employees and employers”.
The announcement doesn't make it clear whether fees will be abolished entirely if the Labour party forms the next government, or whether some form of fees will remain.
