A database containing employment tribunal judgments from England, Wales and Scotland has now been launched by the Ministry of Justice. This will initially cover new or recent judgments; it is not yet known whether pre-existing judgments will also be added.

Decisions can be searched for by name, date, judge or jurisdiction code. To what extent recruiters start using this to find out whether potential candidates have raised tribunal claims against their previous employers remains to be seen.

The database can be viewed online.
