Eversheds comments on changes ahead for the UK employment tribunal system
Geoffrey Mead, partner at Eversheds, has commented on the raft of changes ahead for the UK tribunal system.

EC, a government initiative, is aimed at helping to settle workplace disputes without going to an employment tribunal.
