Fees for Employment tribunal and employment appeal tribunal claims are to be introduced from 29 July 2013.
From this date, all employment claims and appeals will be required to pay a fee or provide an application for fee remission against that fee under the HM Courts & Tribunals Service Remission scheme. Claims and appeals presented before this date will not be subject to fees at all.
A draft statutory instrument to implement the new fees regime was laid before Parliament in April 2013. The government recently consulted on the remissions scheme and aims to implement the new scheme in October 2013.
Further guidance is to be issued by HM Courts & tribunals.
