Employment Tribunal Fees

  • Posted

It is being reported by the Law Society Gazette that, at a forum today, Jenny Willott MP (minister for employment relations and consumer affairs) said that the level of tribunal fees is being kept under review by the government.

She added that the regime is going to be subject to "a lot of parliamentary scrutiny", albeit no indication was given of what form any review would take.

Meanwhile, I am told that Unison are now seeking the Court of Appeal's permission to appeal the High Court's decision refusing their judicial review application over tribunal fees (Unison had previously announced their intention to appeal).
