Supreme Court ruling -the current system of Employment Tribunal fees is ‘unlawful’


The Supreme Court has held that the current system of Employment Tribunal fees, resulting in a 70% reduction in claims, is unlawful, effectively preventing access to justice.  This judgment will have a number of implications, including refunding fees paid to date.  It is expected that the Government will issue a consultation paper to propose a new fee regime.

If you have any questions regarding Employment Law Tribunals, please contact our Employment Department using the details below, for specialist advice.
