The week that was good employment week

The week that was Good Employment Week 

 Nicole Adams, from Clarke Willmott Solicitors explains why good employment matters:

Following the finding in July 2017 that Tribunal fees were unlawful, we have seen more than a 100% increase in tribunal claims.

The Employment Tribunal system, whilst having become more and more complex over the years, was originally designed to enable employees to represent themselves in proceedings against their employer and, therefore, representation is not required.

We regularly have cases with “litigants in person” (or employees representing themselves) on the other side. Furthermore, with each party bearing their own costs (save for in exceptional circumstances), a former (or even current) disgruntled employee has little to lose by pursuing a claim. We are also seeing an increase in investigations by the HMRC into employers who may not be paying National Minimum Wage (NMW) with specific industries being targeted.

Employers are now not only at risk of claims being upheld, compensation awards and financial penalties but also damaging their reputation with the majority of Tribunal hearings being public and the HMRC naming and shaming those who do not pay NMW.  

This can have a hugely detreimental affect on your business and your reputaion, which has obvious reprocusions to your team, your owners, clients and sponsors.

The EEA is here to support employers and during the inugural Good Employment week (15th - 21st November 2018) we covered:
