Employment Tribunal fees

Added on Tuesday 31 Oct 2017

 In July 2017 the Supreme Court decided that Employment Tribunal fees were unlawful and should be abolished.  Judges also ruled that all fees paid since they were introduced in July 2013 should be refunded.  The Government has now launched the first stage of a refund programme.

However, the Lord Chancellor, David Lidington, has confirmed that his department wants to bring back Tribunal fees.  The fees would be a contribution towards the running costs of the courts and tribunal service.
