ABSTRACT
The article explains the legal problems caused by unqualified claims managers in Great Britain. It reveals that employees or employer tribunal representatives who do not have proper authorization may delay proceedings if they are inexperienced or unqualified. In an effort to address such issue, the government introduced the Compensation Act 2006, which prohibits non-legally-qualified people from representing litigants in the tribunal.
