Dispute Resolution Gone Wrong? Get In The Queue…
Posted on 7th March 2022 at 14:50
We’ve all been used to queues and waiting times this year; the shops, the takeaway café’s and appointments; but if you, or your organisation has been involved in a dispute that has not been resolved for both parties – you could face a long wait to get to a Tribunal hearing; let alone a resolution.
A dispute is an official disagreement between an employer and their employee, usually relating to the employee’s rights. Some examples of these maybe unfair selection for redundancy or a capability process that has not been handled correctly.
The latest statistics from the Ministry of Justice revealed that single claims made between April and June this year was 10,318 – a 28% rise to the same three months the previous year. They attributed the rise in claims to the rising levels of unemployment because of the ‘impact of COVID-19 on the economy’.
