Calls to reform tribunal awards

PAYOUTS for discrimination cases should be capped at £50,000, a senior City of London policy official has said.

Employees that lose discrimination cases should be liable to pay some of the employer’s legal costs, Sir Michael Snyder has advised the government.

Snyder’s comments echo the sentiment of many business groups in calling for swift reform of the UK’s tribunal system, to combat the burden of spurious claims on employers.
