Employment Tribunal fees ruled unlawful
The Supreme Court has ruled that the Government were acting unlawfully when they introduced the employment tribunal fees for those bringing claims against their employers.
It is estimated that the Government will now have to repay around £32 million to Claimants who were subjected to the unconstitutional fees.
Since the introduction of the fees in July 2013, there has been a significant downfall in the number of claims being bought to Tribunal.
The news has been welcomed by employment lawyers across the board as the change now allows those lower paid workers to bring their claims and have the right to justice.
