HM Courts & Tribunal Service have announced that Claimants wanting to bring a claim at the employment tribunals (ET) or an appeal at the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) will have to pay set fees from Monday 29th July 2013.

Under the Fees Order and supporting rules, the only way Claimants can avoid having to pay a fee upfront is by providing an application for fee remission against that fee under the HM Courts & Tribunals Service remissions scheme.

This is a significant sea change for the employment tribunal system, where previously no fees have been payable to make a claim. The new system is likely to deter claims from employees who are unable or unwilling to pay a fee when the outcome of their case is uncertain.
