An impact assessment is presented for various proposals on reforming the employment tribunal (ET) system and promoting non-tribunal dispute resolution. Proposals discussed are requiring all ET claims to be submitted to Acas and offered early conciliation procedures as an alternative; allowing employment judges to sit alone on unfair dismissal complaints without lay members; requiring judges to sit alone in the Employment Appeals Tribunal unless they feel a case specifically requires lay members; removing the need to witness statements to be routinely read aloud at hearings; withdrawing state payment of expenses to parties and witnesses while introducing the possibility of requiring parties to pay such expenses; increasing costs and deposit order limits; extending the qualifying period for unfair dismissal from one to two years of prior employment; introducing the possibility of levying financial penalties paid to the Exchequer on employers who breach the law; and reducing the statutory redundancy pay.
