Employment Tribunal Fees Now Unlawful

The Supreme Court has ruled that fees for those bringing employment tribunal claims, which could also include claims brought against employers and recruiters for discrimination during the recruitment process, are unlawful.

The British government introduced tribunal fees in 2013 in a bid to cut the number of malicious and weak cases, but that led to a 79% reduction over three years.

The Supreme Court ruled government was acting unlawfully and unconstitutionally when it introduced the fees, also finding fees were indirectly discriminatory to women.

Recruiters and employers can be brought to tribunal if they use stereotypes relating to any of the protected characteristics such as gender, age or race when placing adverts on behalf of clients.

The interview and the interview questions must not discriminate and fair feedback should always be provided to the candidate post interview.
