Wages are the biggest work worry for North West workers

The north west has the highest number of wages-related employment tribunals

In total, 13,136 claims were made over the last year in the North West, according to figures from Acas, the employment relations service. Wages were clearly the biggest workplace worry for North West workers, with 2,478 claims made on this area – more than any other region.

Unfair dismissal was another issue that featured highly, with 4,910 claims made, second highest after London. The average cost of an employment tribunal claim is almost £7,500.
