40938 - Employment Tribunals Service: Females (Answered)

Andy Slaughter
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the reasons for recent reductions in the number of cases brought by women in employment tribunals.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The review we are currently undertaking on Employment Tribunals fees is assessing the impact that the introduction of fees has had on proceedings in the Employment Tribunals, including in relation to characteristics protected under the Equality Act 2010.

We expect to announce the conclusion of the review in due course.
