Government announces review of Employment Tribunal Fees

  • Posted

The government has announced its long-awaited review of employment tribunal fees. It is expected to conclude towards the end of the year.

Keen-eyed readers will notice there is no mention of any intention to consult with stakeholders or users of the system (although the government has said it will do so if it decides changes are needed). And cynics might notice that this is coming just a week or two before the Unison tribunal fees judicial review is being argued in the Court of Appeal, possibly to avoid the government being asked to explain why it hadn't made good on its previous undertakings to review the fees regime.

Here is the TUC's reaction.
