Employment Tribunal Fees – Update
In July 2017 a decision of the Supreme Court abolished Employment Tribunal fees. This means that anyone taking a claim to the Employment Tribunal no longer needs to pay a fee.
In addition, fees which have been paid either to issue a claim, or for a hearing, will be refunded by the government. However, it is not clear yet what arrangements will be made for refunds. When the arrangements are put in place, the Derbyshire Law Centre website will be updated with information about obtaining a refund.
