Following our Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) live feed we are pleased to announce another step in our quest to be the authoritative source of all injury awards information.
As of February 2017 recent Employment Tribunal judgements can be accessed via GOV.UK at https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions. We have created a RSS feed to this database to extract decisions involving police forces that will be updated automatically as decisions are added.
EATs have always been published on the British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII) but anyone wanting to search or browse employment tribunal decisions had to attend in person at offices in Bury St Edmunds for English and Welsh decisions, and in Glasgow for Scottish decisions. Employment tribunal judgements are first-instance decisions and are not binding on subsequent cases.
However, decisions often provide a detailed account of the facts in a case, which can incentivise parties to settle rather than risk bad publicity. Judgements can also provide helpful examples of how tribunals deal with legal issues and fact situations
You can find the link on the right side bar under Case Law:
Not all decisions will be matters concerning the Equality Act and disability discrimination but you will be able to see patterns from certain police forces as repeated respondents. We will blog about pertinent cases that overlap into injury awards and ill-health retirement.

Thanks IODPA, any idea of when a decision will be made on that ?
Might find out at our conference Harry. We’ll let you know!
That would be very much appreciated IODPA, hope we get some good news as short lived as it will be, left me in a right mess.
Is this where the results for the judicial review for deducting ESA via the ‘Welfare reform Act’ as opposed to ‘Pensions Regulations’ will appear ?
Thanks and a great tool to have at our disposal.
Hi Harry. All judicial reviews are published on http://www.bailii.org/
This is great news and a great link. Thank you so much. There are probably a few here who don’t know about how to check case law. This is an interesting place to spend time and very informative. IODPA already has the greatest researchers in law and this can make it faster access for everyone.
Excellent. Thank you. This gives us useful information in the fight against injustice. Dave, MeWe Island resident.
