In July 2013 the government introduced a fee payment scheme in the Employment Tribunals. Since that time payments have been made by the majority of claimants and, in some cases, by respondents.
Earlier this year the Supreme Court decided that such scheme was unlawful. During the last three months some payments have been repaid. The repayment of fees is now applicable to all parties who have made such payments. The claim for a refund can be made on-line by using the Government website www.gov.uk/employment-tribunals/refund-tribunal-fees .
If you have made a payment of a fee to the tribunal and are having any difficulty in obtaining the appropriate refund please call Martin Thomas on 0121 511 2233.
