Lawyer says system ‘not sustainable’ as waiting times rise for fourth year in a row
Employment tribunal claims in the UK are taking an average of eight months to be heard, as the system struggles under government funding cuts and a surge in complaints.
A report found that waiting times have risen for the fourth year in a row, meaning the average delay between a claim being lodged and an employment tribunal taking place is now 237 days. This compares with 207 days last year, according to research by employment law firm GQ Littler.
