TRIBUNAL FEES: A short-lived victory for the government?

04 April 2014  

The future of fees for bringing a claim in the tribunal remains uncertain despite the failure of Unison’s judicial review proceedings, explains Geoffrey Mead

Unison’s challenge to the employment tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) fees regime has been unsuccessful, meaning that the system, introduced in July 2013, will remain as it stands, for the time being at least. However, the High Court left the door open to further challenge once the impact of fees on claim levels becomes clearer. That being the case, the long-term future of the fees regime is not yet secure.
