Supreme Court ruling -the current system of Employment Tribunal fees is ‘unlawful’
26th July, 2017
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.
