The Employment Tribunal office in Bury St Edmunds currently houses the National Registry of Judgments and handles a major part of the services administration.

But Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS), which runs the Southgate Street centre, have now confirmed they are consulting unions about proposals to move the administrative function to a newer, larger premises in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

One source, who asked not to be named, said that workers would be given the opportunity to transfer in 2014 but claimed many are Bury-based and are unlikely to move.

A spokeswoman for the HMCTS said: “HMCTS is in the early stages of planning a transfer of the administrative function of the Employment Tribunal at Bury St Edmunds to Huntingdon in Spring 2014.

“Employment Tribunal cases will continue to be heard in Bury St Edmunds. The likely impact on staff is not yet known but we are in discussions with the unions and are fully committed to keeping staff informed.”
