New online database for Employment Tribunal judgmentsPrint publication
Employment Tribunal decisions will very soon be publically available online. The online database will enable full online access to recent Tribunal judgments handed down in England, Scotland and Wales. The database will only contain new decisions (from the date that the database goes live). As has always been the case, older decisions can be obtained in person from the Tribunal office at Bury St Edmunds. It is expected that the online service will be up and running by early next year.
It is positive to see modernisation of the Tribunal system. However, the development has not been welcomed by all as concerns have been expressed by a number of trade unions that some employers may use the database to check whether job applicants have made previous employment claims.
