The Government has outlined plans to reduce the number of employment disputes going to an Employment Tribunal.

The proposals include plans to:

  • Introduce a 12 month pay cap on the compensatory award for unfair dismissal.
  • Make template letters available to encourage the use of the new settlement agreements, alongside a statutory code of practice which will include an explanation of improper behaviour.
  • Not set a guideline tariff for settlement agreements. Government will instead develop guidance outlining the issues that should be considered when deciding and negotiating the level of financial settlement.

In addition, the Government has recently launched three employment related consultations, on:

  • Proposals to implement the Acas Early Conciliation (EC) process.
  • Proposals to reform The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employments) (TUPE), the legislation which protects employee rights when the business they work for transfers to a new employer.
  • Reforming the regulatory framework for employment agencies and employment businesses.

Acas will be publishing a draft Statutory Code for public consultation shortly.
