Employment Tribunal Fees

In a letter to stakeholders issued this morning, HM Courts & Tribunal Service have announced that the date for the implementation of fees into the employment tribunals (ET) and Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) will be Monday 29th July 2013.

Subject to the necessary Parliamentary approvals, from this date, all ET claims and EAT appeals from the employment tribunals presented to HM Courts & Tribunals Service will be liable under the Fees Order and supporting rules to pay a fee or provide an application for fee remission against that fee under the HM Courts & Tribunals Service remissions scheme.

This is an important topic, and if you're attending the Employment Law MasterClasses in July, I'll be explaining how the new fee system works and how the complicated fee remission rules are likely to apply.

Daniel Barnett is a barrister with 20 years’ experience litigating and advising in employment, HR and associated litigation. He is primarily a litigator, described in legal directories as “tenacious”, “inexhaustible” and “an excellent advocate” (see testimonials). He has been instructed by a Royal Family, international airlines, various FTSE-250 companies, local authorities, NHS Trusts, as well as a myriad of SMEs. Employee clients range from senior executives of quoted companies through to David & Victoria Beckham’s nanny. His specific areas of interest are post-termination restrictive covenants, age discrimination and retirement issues, industrial law (strikes), employment agencies and permanent health insurance disputes. He practises from Outer Temple Chambers, a highly regarded set of Chambers in London.
Outer Temple Chambers’ employment and discrimination team is an important player in the field.
