NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: be a deterrent but that, given the way it has operated, it is not that at all because whistleblowers are still being punished. Both he and the hon. Lady pointed out the woeful success rates in employment tribunals, which should give us all pause for thought about whether the legislation is fit for purpose. The hon. Member for Stirling talked about how litigation can sometimes be a war...

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: ..., so the guilty avoid scrutiny. The primary dispute resolution mechanism is the court, but who can afford to sue a bank?

Members on either side of the House, which would emulate the operation of employment tribunals so that the plaintiff does not have to stand the cost of the...

Ministry of Justice (2 Jul 2018)

Richard Burgon: ...from their law centre, which has been shut down. A migrant—or even a person who looks like a migrant to some—faces deportation without legal advice.

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Tracy Brabin: ...the norm. Indeed, I have spoken to youngsters out there who have never known a full-time, permanent contract or secure hours. Far too often, work in the gig economy comes with the erosion of employment rights—something that those who have worked in the creative industries know only too well. When I worked in television, we used to call ourselves the original gig economy, because just...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...whiplash claims, the Government propose to remove legal help from a swathe of people with genuine personal injury claims. This is not simply unnecessary but wrong. When the Government introduced fees in employment tribunals, the absence of legal advice and representation frightened many away from taking cases to court and we saw a drop-off of some 90%. In family courts, where legal aid was...

Employment Rates — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

Deidre Brock: ...of employees to defend their rights. I cannot see the Government sticking up for the rights of workers any time soon. This is a Government that had to be dragged kicking and screaming through the courts to scrap fees for employment tribunals and allow the poor access to justice. Frankly, I shudder to think what is in store for our rights after Brexit, but I imagine that at least the...

Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 May 2018)

Baroness Shackleton of Belgravia: ...applicable today. I quote from it: “Once when I was about 12 I read a story in a boy’s paper about a big dance to which people were invited by huge posters with the announcement, ‘No Entrance Fee’. Many went, danced and enjoyed themselves then, on leaving, they were stopped at the door and requested to pay. ‘What do you mean? We were told there was no entrance...

Employment Rights Act 1996 (NHS Recruitment — Protected Disclosure) Regulations - Motion to Approve (1 May 2018)

Baroness Manzoor: ...and Lady Jolly: why is it that just the NHS is included, and which other organisations are excluded from these protections? As noble Lords know, these regulations are specifically focused on NHS employers and are not intended to cover employers in other sectors, which would be outwith the enabling powers under Section 49B of the Employment Rights Act 1996. Section 49B(7) of that Act...

Only last month when her case received national media attention did the Home Office promise to waive her fee...

Scottish Parliament: Civil Litigation (Expenses and Group Proceedings) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (26 Apr 2018)

Annabelle Ewing: ...unwisely. The pay-as-you-go model actively supports the courts system. It supports the objectives of reasonable management of the courts and of non-frivolous claims being pursued, and it allows the fees to be paid in small increments as cases progress through each step of the process. The effect is to make parties stop and consider whether they will proceed to the next stage. That...

Court Closures and Reform — [James Gray in the Chair] (27 Mar 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: ...for Slough (Mr Dhesi) on securing this important debate. The Ministry of Justice finishes consulting later this month on eight closures across five regions, which would add to the 200 courts and tribunals closed since 2011. The lack of clarity from the Government on the court reform programme has been appalling. Bedford magistrates court closed in 2017 amid confusion over when services...

Scottish Parliament: Fair Work (22 Mar 2018)

Clare Haughey: .... Since my election, I have continued to champion workers’ rights. However, it is incredibly frustrating that the bulk of the powers in that area are at the behest of a Tory Government—the party of employment tribunal fees, the pernicious Trade Union Act 2016 and Brexit. There are few areas on which Brexit has more potential to impact than that of workers’ rights....

Women and Work — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: ...1950s justice? Many Members mentioned the gender pay gap. It was of course a Labour Government who passed the Equal Pay Act 1970, following the brave fight for justice by Dagenham women who were employed sewing car seat covers. It is less well known that a factor behind the introduction of that Act was the expectation that the UK would soon accede to the European Economic Community, so UK...
