That this House expresses its concern that proposals included in the Employment (Simplification) Bill and the recent consultation Transforming Tribunals could lead to a situation wherein the long standing practice of tripartite decision making in employment related matters is severely reduced; believes that such decision making has stood the test of time; acknowledges the key role that a legally qualified chairperson plays in the system; is convinced that the experience of lay members in the real world of work is an essential component of the system; notes that many lay members are concerned that their role is to be downgraded; and calls on the Government to put in place a system that builds on, rather than loses, the expertise of lay members.
