The Ministry of Justice has recently undertaken a consultation on its proposal to introduce fees in the employment tribunal. The reasons are two fold, to reduce the burden on businesses by discouraging weak claims and to reduce the financial cost to the tax payer. The consultation has now finished and the Ministry of Justice has published its proposals. The suggestion is that, from summer 2013, the following fees structure will apply:- For claims arising out of payments due on termination (such as notice payments, redundancy payments etc), there will be a fee of £160 to issue the claim and a further £230 if the claim goes to a full hearing. For all other claims, including claims for unfair dismissal, the issue fee will be £250 and it will be £950 for the hearing. There are also further fees proposed for other aspects of the tribunal process, such as a fee of £100 to review a decision and £160 to bring a counter claim.
There are also proposals to introduce fees in the Employment Appeal Tribunal. Again there will be an issue fee and a hearing fee of £400 and £1,200 respectively.
As it currently stands this remains a proposal but we will update you when (which is expected) these proposals are implemented.
