The new online database for Employment Tribunal judgments is now live. This service will cover new judgments in England, Wales and Scotland. It is unclear whether all past decisions will be uploaded as well, however some decisions from 2015/2016 have been published.
The database allows for searches to be made against individuals and company name as well specific judges and topics. Whilst this service is a real step forward for putting information in the public domain, it does mean that any parties with adverse findings will be openly identified and employers can search to see if a prospective employee has brought any claims against their previous employer.
The database can be found on: https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions
