    Companies refusing to pay tribunal compensation awards

    Having had experience, in the past of one of these employment tribunals, I can tell you that it is not easy to get justice from a former employer. The Guardian has this article today on companies refusing to pay up on compensation awarded at employment tribunals:

    The tribunals have no powers to enforce their awards: this can only by done by going to court, which involves paying fees and does not guarantee success. Citizens Advice wants the government to change the law so the state pays the award and collects the money from the employer, possibly through their tax bills.
    I think that is a very good idea. At present, the system is skewed towards the employer, and does not take into account the facts behind an individual's claim. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
