EXPERT CONTRIBUTORS
Patrick Walshe, Partner, Philip Lee Solicitors
Workplace Relations Bill

A reminder of where we are now - number of cases, long waiting lists, inconsistent decisions, costs etc. Why is the
system in need of reform?

A quick reminder of the current structure of the employment tribunals - the five bodies that will be folded into two.

What is planned - the abolition of the EAT and the LRC, the expansion of the Labour Court and the creation of a new
Adjudication Structure.

Focus on the new dispute resolution system.

What predictions can we make about the new system? How will it operate? Will it be quicker? Will it be cheaper? Will it
be more effective? Will it be more consistent?

The UK experience - introduction of fees and an 80% cut in applications to the Tribunals there.

Other changes - compliance notices and "on the spot" fines. New powers of the District Court to enforce judgements.
