No More Tribunal Fees

The Supreme Court decided in July 2017 that the practice of charging court fees of up to £1200 to make a claim to the Employment Tribunal was unlawful, and therefore the requirement to pay a court fee to start a claim or have it listed for a hearing ceased immediately. This was an extremely significant judgement as the fees system, which had been in place since 2013, had caused the amount of Employment Tribunal claims to drop by over 70 %. UNISON had brought the case on behalf of their members.
