Should businesses be wary of employment tribunal verdicts being available online?


Employment tribunal verdicts have recently been made available to the public online, allowing anyone to search for decisions by company name or by topic.

Previously, anyone interested in discovering a certain employment tribunal decision would need to go in person to the offices in Bury St Edmonds.

HM Courts and Tribunals Service announced the change in order to create an “open justice” principle.

But how will making employment tribunal verdicts available online affect employers? In our latest article, our specialist employment law solicitors take a look at the impact of making tribunal verdicts available online.

Will employment tribunal verdicts being online affect your business?

Many employers will have concerns about employment tribunal verdicts being made much easier to access.
