Employment Tribunal Fees

  • Posted

In a letter to stakeholders issued this morning, HM Courts & Tribunal Service have announced that the date for the implementation of fees into the employment tribunals (ET) and Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) will be Monday 29th July 2013.

Subject to the necessary Parliamentary approvals, from this date, all ET claims and EAT appeals from the employment tribunals presented to HM Courts & Tribunals Service will be liable under the Fees Order and supporting rules to pay a fee or provide an application for fee remission against that fee under the HM Courts & Tribunals Service remissions scheme.

This is an important topic, and if you're attending the Employment Law MasterClasses in July, I'll be explaining how the new fee system works and how the complicated fee remission rules are likely to apply.
