Remission of Employment Tribunal Fees

Book your free initial call

    We endeavour to make an initial response to all enquiries within 24 hours but please be aware that on some occasions due to prior commitments or volume of calls we will not be able to respond in that time frame. We also operate a 48 hour return policy. This return policy means that if we have not responded with 48 hours of your initial enquiry we are unable to do so due to current workloads and we will destroy your data accordingly. This policy ensures you are not left waiting and have the certainty that your data is not compromised. In most instances however we are able to make contact within a 24 hour time frame. Please note our free initial advice service is available to clients at our total discretion and if your case is of a complex nature we may not be able to offer you a free consultation. However in these instances we will advise you what the charge would be for an initial fixed fee consultation.

Further changes have taken place on the 30th June 2014 to the remission scheme for Employment Tribunal Fees in an attempt to make some simplifications. Disposable capital to be disclosed is now within thresholds rather than the precise sum. Copies of documents can be provided rather than the originals including copies of online bank statements rather than originals. The Court and Tribunal Service is also in the process of simplifying the form itself and rather than reject applications without all information completed they will endeavour to contact the applicant to ascertain it. This all seems like common sense changes.

Notwithstanding these changes, the remission scheme remains very complex and perhaps this is a contributory factor in the huge reduction in employment tribunal claims we have seen since fees were introduced.
