Employment Tribunal Statistics

We have blogged before (click here) about what we see as the serious restriction of access to justice inflicted by the introduction in July last year of the new employment tribunal fee regime. 

It can cost £1200.00 to pursue an unfair dismissal claim to a hearing. 
 
In theory, a system of“remission” exists so that fees can be waived if you cannot afford to pay them.  In practice, fewer than 1 in 10 remission applications have been granted, and since capital is taken into account, any termination payment you have received if your employment has come to an end might automatically disqualify you from any help with the expensive fees.
