Law society recommends punitive costs against 'oppressive' Employment Tribunal litigants
The Law society has suggested an extension of the current costs regime in employment tribunals. In responding to a review of tribunal rules, the society has recommended two areas where costs could be awarded. The first scenario is where litigants in person ˜constantly bombard opponents with unnecessary correspondence and applications. The second was where a represented party attempted to intimidate an unrepresented litigant with complicated demands or threats.
