Struck Out: Why Employment Tribunals Fail Workers and What Can Be Done


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information


"Every year, over a hundred thousand workers bring claims to an Employment Tribunal. The settling of disputes between employers and unions has been exchanged by many for individual litigation. 
In Struck Out, barrister David Renton gives a practical and critical guide to the system. In doing so he exposes a number of myths about the Tribunals. Far from bringing flimsy cases, three-fifths of claimants succeed at the hearing. And rather than paying lottery-size jackpots, average awards are just a few thousand pounds — scant consolation for loss of employment and often serious psychological suffering. The book includes a critique of the present governemnt's proposals to reform the Tribunal system.
Employment Tribunals are often seen by workers as the last line of defence against unfairness in the workplace. This book shows why we can't rely on the current system to deliver fairness and why big changes are needed."
David Renton. Pluto Press, 2012.
