Stat of the day: Tribunal statistics

By Angela Matthews

More employment tribunal statistics have been released today. These show a continued drop in the number of receipts for disability discrimination. We can track this number for the last year in the mini table below:

Quarter Number of Receipts
Oct – Dec 2012 1,915
Jan – Mar 2013 1,811
Apr – Jun 2013 1,801
Jul – Sep 2013 1,619

Looking at data as far back as April last year (2012), the current figure of 1,619 is the lowest it has been. Disability discrimination still accounts for around 4 per cent of all reasons for making a claim to an employment tribunal.

(Note that these figures are for receipts – not successful claims. The stats released today do not look at successful claims.)
