Employment Tribunal Fees
New UK legislation is now in place that means that any individuals who wish to take a claim to an employment tribunal will have to pay between £160 to £250 to lodge a claim, then they’ll have to pay between £230 to £950 if the case goes ahead to a tribunal hearing.
Claimants will have a cheaper structure if they make a claim in a group as the fee will be split between them.
The adjustment to the claims procedure is part of the Governments plan to cut the £74 million cost of running the previous employment tribunal and appeal system. It is believed that these new rules will encourage businesses and workers to settle their differences privately, and not in a full court hearing.
