Costs in Employment Tribunals meets the needs of practitioners, analysing what tribunals are doing, and more importantly, why they are doing so. Uniquely, it draws on decisions in over 100 unreported tribunal cases where costs were awarded or refused, offering the reader clarity on how costs decisions are made in the cases that make up the bread and butter of their practice. Each chapter deals with costs arising out of particular circumstances, and the book also covers costs in other courts and enforcement issues. This book is essential reading for employment lawyers, in-house lawyers working on employment matters, HR consultants and tribunal judges.
