The Ministry of Justice has published the quarterly tribunal statistics for January to March 2014. The statistics show the significant reduction in the number of claims since the introduction of fees in July 2013 has continued. The latest statistics show that the number of claims brought by single individuals has dropped by 59% compared to the same period in 2013.The reduction appears to be consistent across all types of claim and in all tribunal regions.
Of the complaints disposed of by the employment tribunals in the period January to March 2014, 37% related to working time, 19% were for unfair dismissal, 10% were for equal pay and 8% were associated with discrimination (age, race, sex, sexual orientation, religion or disability).
