Employment Law and HR Best practice is a forever changing field making it difficult for employers to keep up. The current climate means running a successful business is both challenging and leaves little time to spare, yet having the right employees in roles, who perform as they should and are motivated and engaged can have a direct effect on productivity, efficiency and the bottom line. Equally managing difficult employee situations can be draining and time consuming to a business and the knock on effect on the rest of a team can be damaging.
Employment Tribunals received a total of 83,031 claims during 2015 – 2016 which marks an increase of almost 25,000 on the previous year.

There were only 500 more single claims than in 2014-2015.
The total number of Employment Tribunal claims saw a 35% increase in the year-on-year figures.
Of those proceeding to a hearing, 46% of unfair dismissal claims were successful. The median award was £7332. The highest award was £470,865.
