Tribunal fees update

29 May 2013

HM Courts & Tribunals Service has today confirmed that from 29 July this year, employees will have to pay fees for employment tribunal claims.

Fees will be up to £250 in order to issue a claim, and a further fee of up to £950 for a hearing, depending on the complexity of the claim. There will be means-tested fee remissions for those who cannot afford the new fees. We expect a flurry of claims issued before the deadline, but hopefully after that, the tide will be stemmed.

HM Courts & Tribunals Service is to issue further information about exactly how the system is to operate, as we get nearer the date.
