Government considering re-introducing Employment Tribunal Fees

12 November 2018

Daniel Barnett’s employment law bulletin has highlighted that it is being reported in the Law Society Gazette that the government is considering reintroducing tribunal fees.

Whilst no detail is given, the Ministry of Justice has said it is confident that a fee system can be found which does not deny Claimants access to justice, for which the government was criticised in R (on the application of UNISON) v Lord Chancellor.

This follows on from a written answer in Hansard in the summer, where the Ministry of Justice said it was reviewing how (not whether) it would reintroduce fees.

Further details can be found in the article in the Law Society Gazette.
