An amending order will come into force on 6 April that will re-categorise the following as “Type B” claims:

  • equal pay
  • sex equality in pension schemes
  • failure to inform or consult under TUPE
  • failure to allow compensatory rest under the Working Time Regulations
  • breach of the right to request time off for training.

Type B claims attract a higher level of tribunal fees; the issue fee is £250 and the hearing fee is  £950 for a single claimant.
