Employment Tribunal Fees Are No More

The Supreme Court has ruled against the fees for employment tribunals which they said discriminated against the low paid and females.

Lord Reed, giving the lead judgement, with whom six other judges, including the President and Deputy President, agreed said the decrease in the number of claims issued due to the fees was inconsistent with access to justice.

The Government has now started the process of refunding the fees that have been charged since July 2013 which is believed to be about £32,000,000.
