As an employer, it can be frustrating to be served with an unmeritorious claim. Especially if the business has done everything to support and nurture that employee. Defending claims are costly. Also, you do not automatically recover your costs if you win. Therefore, for most employers they settle disputes that otherwise may be unsuccessful in a Tribunal. This may then have the knock on effect of other employees raising issues that may lack merit, in order to receive a pay-out.
