Too fee or not to fee?

The Supreme Court has upheld Unison’s appeal and found that the Employment Tribunal fee regime is unlawful.

The fee regime introduced in 2013 required Claimants in most cases to pay £250 to lodge a claim, and a further £950 to proceed to a hearing. With this system now being declared unlawful by the Supreme Court, it remains to be seen whether the Government will choose to replace the regime, or scrap it in its entirety.

We will provide more details on the decision once the full judgment is available.
