Employment Tribunal Fees to be introduced on 29 July 2013

HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) has published a letter confirming that the implementation date for fees in the employment tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal will be Monday 29 July 2013. The letter states that 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 HMCTS remissions scheme.

The government recently consulted on the remissions scheme and aims to implement the new scheme in October 2013.
