September saw the publication of the employment tribunal statistics from April – June 2017.
Figures show there was a small rise in the number of employment tribunal claims with 4,241 single claims received, an increase of 2% on the same period in 2016. However, the total claim number has risen by around 6% compared to 2015/2016.
In terms of employment tribunal fees, fees requested were down 1% when compared to the same period last year.
Overall, the figures have remained relatively stable. But now that the fees regime for employment tribunals has been scrapped (as of 26th July this year) this could change- so watch this space!
