There are more claims than there were, but there has not been a deluge and we do not expect one.

We would continue to encourage businesses to manage employment issues early, before they result in any claim being lodged. Our employment team frequently advises on how best to manage complex employment issues including managing long term sickness, performance issues, disciplinary matters and grievances.
