Webinar: The Law Commission Paper: What is the future shape of Employment Tribunals and the civil courts in employment disputes?

The last time that the arrangement of employment law disputes were considered, Lord Briggs (in his Civil Court Structure Review published in 2016) described the shared and exclusive jurisdiction of courts and tribunals in the employment field as “an awkward area”. The Law Commission Paper, which John Bowers QC and Ed Kemp will be discussing, seeks to address what an appropriate structure should be and addresses a whole range of issues such as;
  • What are the ideal structures for Employment Hearings?
  • Should the limitation periods for presentation be extended?
  • Is the Tribunals' breach of contract jurisdiction too narrow?
  • Should all discrimination claims be transferred to Employment Tribunals? 
  • Should the EAT take appeals from the Central Arbitration Committee or should they continue to proceed by judicial review?
  • Should multiple respondents should be able to claim contributions from each other?
  • Should there be a specialist Employment and Equalities list in the High Court?
