Tribunal Fees - Stay on Cases has been removed

  • Posted

Earlier this month, the Presidents of the Employment Tribunals issued a Case Management Order staying all claims and applications arising from the Unison decision.

Today, in a further Case Management Order, that stay has been lifted.

All applications for reimbursement of fees, or for the reinstatement of claims rejected or dismissed for non-payment of fees, shall be made in accordance with administrative arrangements to be announced by the Ministry of Justice and HMCTS shortly (see paras 3 and 4 of the Orders)

Any other (judicial, as opposed to administrative) matters arising from the Unison decision are no longer subject to any stay, and fall to be considered judicially in the normal way (see paras 5 and 6 of the Orders).
