Employment Tribunal Fees

  • Posted

Has HM Courts & Tribunal Service made its hoped-for £10m from tribunal fees?

According to the HMCTS annual report (p85), fee income generated just under £4.5m in the 8 months between 29th July 2013 and 30th March 2014, equivalent to (about) £6.7m projected forward over a full year. So tribunal fees are generating about two-thirds the fee income of what HMCTS was hoping for - which is a lot more than many people (including me) had thought would be the case, given the (approx) two-thirds drop in the number of tribunal claims.
