UK Government opens employment tribunal fees consultation


Wed, 01 Feb 2017

A review of employment tribunal fees has been opened by the UK Government, which has admitted that there is evidence that some people are being put off from bringing claims. Introduced in 2013, the fees were followed by a fall of about 70% in the number of claims, and legal challenges on the basis that they were having a discriminatory effect. The Scottish Government has promised to abolish the fees when the subject becomes devolved. The deadline for responses is 14 March 2017.
