Answer the question! Discrimination Questionnaires

Discrimination Questionnaires to be abolished on 06/04/14. The discrimination questionnaire procedure provided a useful weapon for a claimant prior to issue of a claim in the Employment Tribunal to obtain useful evidence to assist his or her case. Failure to answer questions could result in an adverse inference being drawn. However, on 6th April of this year the procedure will be abolished and, as a result, the usefulness of the procedure much diminished. The tribunal will still be able to look at whether and how questions have been answered as a contributory factor in making a decision by an employer in a discrimination claim.
