The numbers are in! ET statistics for 2009/10

07 July 2010 #Employment


The Employment Tribunal Annual Statistics for 2009/10 have now been published.  Key figures are as follows:

  • There was a 56% increase from 2008/09 in the number of claims accepted by Employment Tribunals, which were at their highest ever level. Multiple claims were the main cause of this.
  • There was a 14% increase in the number of single claims accepted by Employment Tribunals.
  • There was a 17% increase in the number of tribunal claims associated with unfair dismissal, breach of contract and redundancy. The probable cause of this was the economic recession.
  • There was a 22% increase in the number of disposals by Employment Tribunals. However, this did not keep up with receipts - more than 400,000 claims remained outstanding.
  • There was a significant drop in the number of Employment Tribunal claims in which the first hearing took place within 26 weeks of the claim being received. It fell from 74% to just 65%.
