The new online judgement publishing is set to come into force sometime at the start of the new year, 2017.

The announcement has been made following a number of high-profile cases, in which the judgement concerning the companies involved had been published. Both Asda and Uber were taken to employment tribunals over issues within the workplace and members of staff.

Claimants and lawyers will have complete online access, with the ability to look up employment tribunal judgments against a specific company and topic, making it much more accessible for all.

The online service will be free to use and searches will be available to read instantaneously. No former knowledge of a particular case will prevent the user from searching for a specific judgement.
