Law Commission consulting on changes to the Employment Tribunal system

October 1, 2018
Employment Law

The Law Commission has published a consultation paper, in which it raises the prospect of making significant changes to the way in which the Employment Tribunal system works.  If you are interested in knowing more about its proposals, read on.

What does the Law Commission have in mind?

In its consultation paper, the Law Commission has outlined a number of potential changes. The most significant are probably the proposals to:

·      extend the time limit for bringing Employment Tribunal claims to 6 months; and

·      increase(or possibly even remove) the £25,000 cap on breach of contract claims;

The current consultation process comes to an end on 11 January 2019.  If you are interested in having your say, here’s a link to the relevant webpage, where you can find information about how to make a submission:


What next?

Once the consultation process has been completed, the Law Commission will finalise its proposals and submit a report to the relevant government ministers. There is no guarantee that their proposals will be adopted into law.  However, their thoughts on such matters can certainly be persuasive.
