Employment Tribunal Flaw

Pink News has an interesting piece relating to a bid to include a new provision in the Employment Bill, currently before Parliament, to strengthen to powers of an Employment Tribunal. At present they can not enforce a monetary award. This means that those who might win a claim based on sexuality discrimination (protected since 2003) might not actually get the financial award they are awarded from an employer. The proposal seems a sensible one and comes on the back of report by Citizens Advice called 'Justice Denied'. The report is linked to on the Pink News story.
