BEIS guidance document explains powers available to employment tribunals
Article by:Makbool Javaid |
The BEIS have published a document providing an explanation of the powers available to tribunals and highlighting case law which illustrates how they have been used. The aim is to: (i) increase confidence that poor behaviour or conduct in bringing or defending a claim can have financial consequences; (ii) point out that tribunals can be asked to make use of those powers; and, (iii) help provide reassurance about the purpose and limits of these powers, so that people are not dissuaded from proceeding with a claim or putting forward a defence.
