The government has confirmed that an initial 1,000 people are eligible to apply for refunds of the employment tribunal fees they paid.

Author: Matthew Hodson

Following the Supreme Court’s decision that the employment tribunal fee regime was unlawful, the government has confirmed that an initial 1,000 people are eligible to apply for refunds of the employment tribunal fees they paid.  

The government will contact you if you are part of this first group of individuals. Otherwise, it appears, you will have to wait until the full scheme is launched.

If you have paid employment tribunals fees, but have not been invited to take part in the initial stage, you can register your interest at: ethelpwithfees@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk.

As well as being refunded your fees, you will also be entitled to an interest payment of 0.5%, calculated from the date of you made the payment(s).


If you think you would like to discuss a potential employment tribunal or any of the issues raised in this blog, please contact us on 020 7234 0200 or employment@waterfrontsolicitors.com.
