Tribunal quarterly statistics published for July to September 2015

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) have published the tribunal quarterly statistics for the period July to September 2015. In that period:

  • the number of single employment tribunal claims was 4,345 – an increase of 4% on the same period in  2014;
  • the number of multiple claims was 18,727, almost double the amount received the same quarter last year, with the increase mainly due to two large multiple cases totalling 9,508 claims for age discrimination and equal pay;
  • 9,157 claims were disposed of – a decrease of 39% on the same period in 2014, which is the lowest number of quarterly disposals since statistics began in 2009/10; and,
  • 23% of cases were awarded either a full or partial ‘issue’ fee remission and 16% were awarded either a full or partial ‘hearing’ fee remission.
