CBI COMMENTS ON TRIBUNAL FEES CONSULTATION

CBI COMMENTS ON TRIBUNAL FEES CONSULTATION

The CBI today commented on the launch of a Government consultation on charging fees in employment tribunals.

Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said: “Charging a fee to bring a tribunal case is a good way of weeding out more of the weak and vexatious claims, which are costing the taxpayer many millions of pounds a year. Asking a higher fee for the bigger claims will also help to keep expectations realistic.

“It’s right that the tribunal system is given more time to deal with legitimate cases, which really deserve attention. Introducing fees shouldn’t be a barrier to justice, because the Government is waiving fees for those who cannot afford to pay.”
