The article discusses a survey by the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA), which shows its members' dissatisfaction with the performance of the employment tribunal system in Great Britain. Figures from the tribunal service show a 56 percent increase in the number of claims accepted by employment tribunals between April 2009 and March 2010. Among the suggestions given by lawyers to facilitate tribunals' operation are the handling of procedural hearings by telephone and the streamlining of time tables for hearings.
