UNISON, one of the UK's largest trade unions, has announced that it is calling for a judicial review of the decision made by the Ministry of Justice to introduce fees in the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. In an official statement from the trade union, the General Secretary called the introduction of these charges a "blatant attempt to stop working people from exercising their employment rights". Among a number of legal arguments, UNISON states that the introduction of fees will be indirectly discriminatory by having a disproportionately adverse impact on women.
