Tribunal Fees

Unison has lost its Court of Appeal case, which challenged the legality of Tribunal Fees.  Whilst the Court of Appeal was concerned about the sharp decline in Employment Tribunal claims, it said that in itself that was not sufficient and there needed to be evidence of the “actual affordability of the fees in the financial circumstances of (typical) individuals”.

However within days of the outcome of this case, the Scottish Government announced that it intends to abolish Employment Tribunal fees.
