Ian spoke to People Management Magazine about the latest statistics from the Employment Tribunal.  
The figures show that the tribunal is receiving fewer claims from individual claimants, but more group claims by multiple claimants.  
While it's hard to explain these changes without reading each case, it could be a result of the cost-of-living crisis encouraging people to split the cost of litigation. It could also suggest a change in the type of issues causing disputes. Firms might be facing firm-wide problems level throughout the business, rather than disputes between individuals.  
Ian also shared our advice to employers to help avoid tribunals: 
Implement clear processes and follow them in all cases. 
Treat whistleblowing disclosures and grievances as a chance to resolve problems before they escalate. 
Be open to discussion, to try and resolve the issue without conflict. 
Seek advice early to understand your legal position. 
Be honest with your legal advisor, don't cover up mistakes. 
Consider the economics of the case and stay focussed on your business interests.
