Increase in employment tribunal claims following removal of fees
Figures for the final quarter of 2017 show that employment tribunal cases almost doubled when compared with the same period of 2016 after the abolition of claim fees by the Supreme Court in July 2017. In addition 4,800 claimants applied for a refund of fees that they had paid between July 2013 and last July 2017, resulting in refunds totalling £2.8 million.https://www.thetimesbrief.co.uk/users/39175-the-brief-team/posts/31051-employment-tribunal-claims-double-after-scrapping-of-fees
