    While I generally agree with the sentiment of this article, we should not be too quick to dismiss tribunals.

    There are too many commercial organisations in which the management, instead of acting in the interests of the owners of the business, operate in a self-serving fashion. They try to clear out any dissenting voices. Put simply, many are dishonest and incompetent. Tribunals can serve to expose them – and owners of businesses should look very clearly at tribunal payouts (or at payouts made to avoid tribunal cases) when assessing the management.

    The increase in the number of tribunals is very worrying news. Combined with a high minimum wage, large benefit increases and further regulatory burdens on employers, this suggests that job creation will be severely hampered during the recession. Accordingly unemployment will be far higher than it would have been under more liberal conditions.
