"Return of tribunal fees"


Hat tip to Thompsons Solicitors. This is dreadful news. The employment tribunal process is already biased in favour of employers. Today I had to help an unemployed member apply to a tribunal. The prospect of fees will frighten people. We already have unscrupulous lawyers threatening to claim costs on winnable cases.

Picture is of the UNISON team that took legal action in 2017 which resulted in fees being quashed since they were found to prevent access to justice and discriminative. Hopefully these fees can be stopped as well.
