Employment tribunal fees were a 'very bad move' - Vince Cable
The government brought in employment tribunal fees of up to £1,200 two years ago.
Subsequent claims fell by nearly 70% in the first three months of the 2013-14 financial year, with sex discrimination claims down 82% over the same period, Mr Cable told the Independent.

“There is enough evidence to suggest that this was a very bad move and should be reversed,” he said.
He also argued the fees were an example of the Conservatives' “aggressively anti-worker, anti-union agenda”, and accused Justice Secretary Chris Grayling of “remarkable bad faith” for failing to carry out a review after their introduction.
