The Lord Chancellor has provided an update on employment tribunal fees to the House of Commons Justice Committee. A large number of potentially eligible people have apparently failed to apply since the refund scheme was rolled out in November last year, following the abolition of Tribunal fees. The Ministry of Justice is therefore writing to affected people in order to raise awareness. The first batch of 2,000 letters was issued on 9 April 2018.
If you paid a Tribunal fee in the past then it is likely you can apply for a refund. See our previous blog dated 24th October 2017. Should you require assistance with this process then please contact us.
