Employment Tribunal Judgments Online: What This Means in Practice
An online employment tribunal judgments database is now live which has important consequences for employers and employees
The online database of employment tribunal judgments announced some time ago is now being populated with significant amounts of material. Users can now search employment tribunal judgments in England, Wales and Scotland by reference to the parties to proceedings, date ranges and specific types of claim – for example, unfair dismissal or discrimination – or even decisions made by specific employment judges. The search function applies to the text of the judgments contained in the database so it can be used to identify cases involving a type of issue – for example, a search could check for cases about theft or personality disorders – or indeed specific individuals whether as witnesses or otherwise. Users can also sign up for an email alerter.
