The recently published tribunal statistics for 2009/10 show that claims submitted by employees during the last year have increased by 56% on the previous year.
The most popular claims accepted by the tribunal were for:
- Unfair dismissal – 57,400 claims (an increase of 8%)
- Breach of contract – 42,400 claims (an increase of 23%)
- Unauthorised deductions from wages – 75,000 (an increase of 54%)
This demonstrates the risks of a claim are higher than they have ever been. Your best defence is to ensure that you have followed the correct procedures and best practice when dismissing employees.
