Employment tribunals to be merged? – 25th January 2013

A consultation paper entitled ‘Future Administration and Structure of Tribunals in Northern Ireland’ has been published outlining proposals for reform of employment tribunals in Northern Ireland. The proposals have been by Justice Minister David Ford who believes that the current system of tribunals is “too fragmented.” Last year, 16,000 cases were dealt with by employment tribunals with regard to unfair dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination. Consultation on the paper ends on 19th April 2013
