Latest tribunal statistics reveal a huge rise in the number of claims

HM Courts & Tribunal Service is in the process of recruiting more employment judges, which will help reduce the backlog in the medium to longer term.

• number of single claims lodged increased by 165% compared with the same quarter last year. • the number of single claims outstanding rose by 130% compared with the same quarter last year. • there have been 12,400 fee refund payments made since the fee refund scheme was introduced, totalling just over £10m. • disability discrimination cases had the largest average award £30,700.

Religious discrimination claims had the lowest average award (£5,100).

The average award for unfair dismissal awards was £15,007.
