Employment Tribunal Fees: £1.8 million refunded in 2 months
One of the biggest issues facing employment law in recent years has been the access to justice barrier created by Tribunal Fees. Last summer, following a claim lodged by Unison, fees were abolished and a scheme was set up to repay those unlawfully charged fees – with 0.5% interest!
After opening the refund scheme in October last year, the Ministry of Justice refunded £1.8m to over 2,000 applicants in its first two months. The MoJ estimates that £33m is owed in refunds, meaning there are still a significant amount of refunds yet to be applied for or processed.
At PJH Law we are working with all former Tribunal clients to help complete their applications. With many having already received refunds dating back to claims brought in 2013.
