TRIBUNAL FEES: The saga continues

02 October 2015  

Uncertainty surrounds the future of the employment tribunal fee regime, writes Diane Nicol

The long-running saga around the introduction of the government’s employment tribunal fee charging regime (the regime) continues despite Unison’s latest, failed attempt to convince the Court of Appeal that its introduction in July 2013 was unlawful. With Unison’s threatened appeal to the Supreme Court against the latest decision, a government review of the regime, a select committee review of court and tribunal fees and the Scottish government’s intention to abolish fees altogether, we remain in uncertain territory.
