The article discusses proposals aimed at curbing the abuse in the use of statutory procedures in Great Britain which has led to a proliferation of multiple grievances prepared by claimants' lawyers. Under the proposed employment bill, the existing statutory dismissal and grievance procedures will be scrapped entirely. Instead of fixed mandatory procedures, employers and employees will have to follow the sections on dispute resolution in the code of practice that is relevant to the grievance in question.
