Access to justice and tribunals at £1200

I have just found out that in future it will cost £1,200 to take an employer to an employment tribunal. I believe this is part of a long-term Tory policy to deny justice to the poor and workers. I've signed a petition to reverse this. it concentrates on sex harassment but I do know of someone who successfully took their employer to a tribunal for wrongful dismissal, when they were forced to resign, due to overwork, after being given the workload of 3 people who had lost their jobs. I think this charge will make justice unlikely and workers will be more put upon. Please sign

Gove is determined to make access to justice more difficult in a number of ways. He has also said that the EU stops him going even further.

Be very afraid!

They will do anything they can to push the workers even further down. People who are in poverty and terrified of losing their jobs don't make a fuss and bosses can get away with anything.

Again, it will not affect the retired who are the keenest to get out

Sorry Anniebach don't understand. Of course it won't affect the retired, or the unemployed come to that. But I am sure there are some GNs who are working and may well find employers being much more aggressive and restrictive-because they can! And since when did GN restrict itself to subjects which only affected older people, many of us are concerned for our DCs and GCs.
