The controversial introduction of tribunal fees has not affected employers' attitudes, according to attendees of a law firm's mock tribunal workshop.
The introduction of fees in July 2013 sparked a fierce debate, with claims that it reassures employers that they were ‘safe to discriminate’ as employees will be unable to bring tribunal claims without significant financial resources. Delegates at Winckworth Sherwood’s seminar were clear this is not the case for them, as employers; their behaviour has not changed at all since the introduction of the fees. The interactive seminar, co-hosted with Buzzacott, was attended by 50 HR leaders from a variety of sectors including education, real estate, retail, housing, technology and finance and provides delegates with the knowledge to navigate the complex and confusing process of fair conduct dismissal.
Employment tribunal system needs radical reform, says the Law Society. Unlawful employment practices will continue to go unpunished unless the tribunal system is overhauled, the Law Society has warned today.
The Law Society has published proposals to transform the employment tribunal structure to benefit employees, employers, and the administration of justice. The complexity and cost of using the current system discourages people from bringing legitimate claims and businesses from defending wrongful accusations. The Law Society proposes a new employment tribunal structure, where: claims are dealt with flexibly, depending on their intricacy and the financial stakes involvedall employment law disputes will be dealt with in a single jurisdiction consisting of four levels. simple cases, such as handling unpaid wages claims would be dealt with on a paper basis in Level 1more complex cases, such as multi-strand discrimination cases, would be heard by an experienced judge in Level 4 'Employment tribunals must work for employers and employees.
Mediation program helping to resolve conflicts in aged care, trial shows - Australian Ageing Agenda. Preliminary results from a specialised conflict resolution program for seniors, run between a provider and a counselling group, have shown facilitated mediation may be an effective way to resolve conflicts between older people, their families and care providers.
The decision to enter residential aged care or begin community care can be complex for an older person and their family. When conflict arises over an older relative’s care or financial arrangements, a family may prefer not to settle the manner through legal means, especially as these processes can be costly and adversarial in nature, which can damage relationships further.

Nobel Peace Prize for Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet. Image copyright AFP The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Tunisia's National Dialogue Quartet for helping the country's transition to democracy.
The Nobel committee said the group of civil society organisations had made a "decisive contribution" to democracy after the 2011 revolution. It said the quartet helped establish a political process when the country "was on the brink of civil war". Tunisia's uprising was the first and most successful of the Arab Spring. While other countries - Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Syria - either reverted to authoritarian rule or descended into violence and chaos, Tunisia managed a successful transition to democracy.

SNP offers to mediate in Catalonia power crisis (From Herald Scotland) SCOTLAND has offered to mediate between Spain and Catalonia as the two Iberian nations enter a constitutional crisis.
Catalan nationalists swept back in to power this weekend in parliamentary elections widely billed as a proxy referendum on independence. The government in Barcelona is now firmly on a collision course with Madrid politicians who believe any attempt at breakaway - or even a Scottish-style vote - would be illegal. The Scottish Government, sources said, believes it could "mediate and assist both the Spanish and Catalan governments" using its "recent experience in a consensual referendum process".
Its offer - delicately put by Cabinet Secretary Fiona Hyslop - comes after politicians on both sides of the constitutional divide in the UK called for a Scottish-style vote to settle the independence issue in Catalonia. The current Spanish Government of Conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has rejected any democratic vote in Catalonia. Both sides claimed victory yesterday.
