The period employees must have been with an employer before they can claim unfair dismissal has risen from 1 year to two years from the 6 April 2012.

The change follows the “resolving workplace disputes” consultation which launched January this year.

This consultation also proposed measures to:

  • encourage the early resolution of disputes
  • speed up the tribunal process
  • tackle weak and vexatious claims

These proposals are expected to cut the number of unfair dismissal claims by just over 3,000 a year.
