Judicial Review on Employment Tribunal Fees

18th December, 2014

Unison’s Judicial Review application has been rejected by the High Court regarding the Employment Tribunal Fees.

Unison has been unsuccessful in challenging the legality of the increased Employment Tribunal Fees which came into effect last year. This is the second time Unison have been unsuccessful in an application to overturn the tribunal fees.

Unison believed that this time they had a better chance of success this time after their investigations concluded that the changes in tribunal fees had a disproportionate affect on women, people with disabilities and people with a low income.

The High Court this morning has dismissed the Judicial Review and has confirmed that reasons for their decision will follow.

One ray of hope is that the Labour Party has pledged to remove and reform the current system if they are successful in next year’s election, so lets wait and see!

For further information and advice on changes to Employment Tribunal Fees, please contact Helen Watson on 01244 405565 or send an email to [email protected]
