Employment Tribunal claims statistics and fees Judicial Review

In March 2014, the Ministry of Justice reported there was a 79% drop in claims since fees were introduced. The April to June 2014 statistics reveal a 71% drop in claims.

UNISON challenged the use of fees by the Employment Tribunals and argued that it removed access to justice for employees. The High Court ruled against UNISON and UNISON is currently appealing this decision.

So far, the Tribunals have made £4.5m from Tribunal fees since their introduction in July 2013. This is short of their projections due to the drop off in cases. At present though Tribunal fees are here to stay.
