The MoJ have published the Tribunals and Gender Recognition Certificate Statistics Quarterly for July to September 2016. The key figures are as follows:

  • A total of 4,300 single claims were received, up 2% on July to September 2015.
  • 27,200 multiple claims were received, up 45% on last year, however the number of multiple claims cases they relate to decreased by 19% to 228. This increase in the number of multiple claims was driven by a large multiple airline case relating to the working time directive jurisdiction.
  • There were 5,200 Employment Tribunal issue fees requested. Of these, 3,400 (65%) cases had the full issue fee paid outright whilst 1,200 (23%) cases were awarded either a full or partial issue fee remission. As a proportion of remission applications, 54% were rewarded full or partial remission.
