The introduction of tribunal fees - what could the impact be?

3 August 2012

The Government has published its response to the consultation on introducing fees in employment tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. Announcing the fees that will apply "from summer 2013", the justice minister stated: "We want people, where they can, to pay a fair contribution for the system they are using, which will encourage them to look for alternatives." These would include, for example, mediation, Acas conciliation or directly negotiated settlement.

Andreas White, employment partner writes for Personnel Today  and considers the consequences of fees for employment tribunals.
