UK Tribunal Service Not Fit for purpose!

Nobody likes waiting but imagine putting your life on hold completely?

The UK Tribunal Service Not Fit for purpose!  If takes so long to wait, most case are never heard.  Settlement via ACAS or commercially are becoming the norm; with less and less cases being heard.

The is a loss for both the ‘user’ of the Tribunal service and the service itself.  The service itself uses the statute on the Employment Tribunals are tribunal non-departmental public bodies in England and Wales and Scotland which have statutory jurisdiction to hear disputes between employers and employees.

The most common disputes are concerned with unfair dismissal, redundancy payments and employment discrimination.  There are very few cases dealing with Protected disclosures; which is the only place such an act of disclosure can be heard – in relation to Employment only.

Most issues raised as Whistleblowing are in the press; rather than to the directed authority under the ‘Protected Disclosures Act’.

This leaves me, and I guess – due to the number of articles in the press, many others a low expectation of the Tribunal service; or disgust at the lack opportunity make a disclosure stick.  For instance if you made a disclosure (to an authority) as a citizen to a public body or company; there is no court or tribunal which while hear your ‘point of law’.

I sick of waiting, the wait is causing me immense pain – due to my ME and my depression.  But I couldn’t live with myself if I gave up or took the easy way out, such as – by blowing of steam to the press.   I do not what my ‘point of law’ or ‘subject of disclosure’ to be mudded or sullied by the misreading of the press.
