Where to get information on employment tribunal fee remission
The introduction of employment tribunal fees at the end of July has divided opinion along predictable lines. As the debate looks set to continue, it is as well to remember that the fees are not universal. Employees on a low income or claiming certain benefits may qualify for a fee remission - either a waiver of the whole fee or a reduction.
Information about remission of employment tribunal fees is available from GOV.UK - Employment tribunal fees forms.
The new employment tribunal fees are part of a raft of changes currently being made to employment legislation. Acas is taking a leading role in how some of these changes are to be implemented, and is therefore well placed to offer advice and training on the new rules. Employment law update events including the course 'Dispute resolution. What's changing?', give a practical overview of the new legal landscape surrounding employment tribunal procedures.
