EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL STATISTICS
In 2010-11 the cost to the taxpayer of running employment tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal in England, Wales and Scotland was more than £84m, according to the Ministry of Justice.
The Treasury said that more than 80% of applications made to an employment tribunal did not result in a full hearing. Almost 40% of applicants withdrew their cases, but employers still had to pay legal fees in preparing a defence. It is not known how many of the 40% withdrawn cases settled ‘out of court’ or what the figure is.
During 2010 there were 236,000 employment tribunal claims of which only some were unfair dismissal claims, with an average award for successful complainants of £8,900.
