Jonathan Djanogly MP has recently responded to questions posed in the House of Commons in connection with the number of unpaid Employment Tribunal awards and ACAS settlements which have subsequently been referred to the High Court Enforcement Officers (“HCEO”). In addition, Mr Djanogly discussed the number of multiple cases accepted by Employment Tribunals between 2000-2011.
He has confirmed that in the year 2010-2011:
Data is currently being reviewed to ascertain how many unpaid awards and settlements were successfully enforced or otherwise by the HCEO. This information should be available by the end of April 2012.
Furthermore, the number of multiple cases (i.e. two or more people bringing claims arising from the same or very similar circumstances) accepted by Employment Tribunals increased from 5,000 in 2002-2003 to 7,400 in 2009-2010. However, these statistic saw a decline in 2010-2011 to 5,900.
