Fees become payable by the Claimant in employment tribunal claims against the employer

Following changes in employment law, fees are now payable by the Claimant in employment tribunal claims against the employer.

From the 29th July 2013, a party bringing a claim in the employment tribunal or an appeal must pay an ‘issue’ fee. There are two levels of fee payable, depending upon the type and complexity of the claim brought. For example, where tribunal claims involve disputes over unpaid wages, holiday or redundancy pay the Claimant is required to pay a ‘type A’ issue fee of £160. For more complex claims involving unfair dismissal and discrimination, a ‘type B’ fee of £250 is payable. For a complete schedule of type A and B claims click here.

Claimants are also required to pay an additional hearing fee in the event the claim brought proceeds to hearing stage. If the employer (Respondent) makes certain applications during the course of the proceedings they can also be required to pay a fee. A party may apply for remission from fees in whole or in part in certain circumstances.

Please contact Mark Bestley or Nicola Parker for further information.
