Employment tribunal fees come into force in July

Employment tribunal fees come into force in July

HM Courts & Tribunal Service has confirmed that fees for Employment Tribunals (ET) and Employment Appeal Tribunals (EAT) will come into place on Monday 29 July 2013.

Adrian Marlowe, MD at Lawspeed said: “The introduction of fees is likely to encourage both employees and employers to resolve their disputes at the earliest opportunity, before it reaches a Tribunal.”

From 29 July, all ET claims and EAT appeals from the employment tribunals presented to HM Courts & Tribunals Service will be liable to pay a fee or provide an application for fee remission.

The level of the fees depends on the nature of the claim. Issue fees will be either &pound160 or &pound250 while hearing fees will be &pound230 or &pound950.

Marlowe concluded: “However, the deterrent of fees is only helpful to a certain extent and does not replace having proper contracts and procedures in place to deal with difficult situations.”
