The Employment Act 2008, which came into Law on the 6th April 2009, puts the onus on Employers and their Employees to try and solve disputes before they come before any Tribunal. This adds to legislation introduced in 2004. Whilst the mechanisms to solve any dispute between Employer and Employee does not legally mean the involvement of mediation, it is strongly recommended and Tribunals will ascertain the lengths to which a resolution was persued. ACAS guidlines must be followed. Tribunals now have the power to vary damages by plus or minus up to 25%, as to whether the correct proceedures have been applied.
