Employment Tribunals between 2011-2016

Question

I am interested in researching the number of Employment Tribunal actions which have occurred in recent years and the number of occasions in which a Police Force has sought to action a Cost Application to recover any of the costs which they may have incurred. My research is not seeking to identify any individual nor to identify the value of any Cost Application nor as to whether such an Applications was successful or not. It is purely a statistical exercise.

I would like you to answer the following question.

In each of the calendar years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016

a) How many Employment Tribunals have there been between your Police Force and an individual member of staff or Police officer?

b) Following the Employment Tribunal, on how many occasions did the Police Force make a Cost Application against

i) The individual member of staff/police officer;

ii) A union/Police Federation who represented the individual
