HR Magazine published an article on 30 July 2013 saying that "With the introduction of fees for the first time the employment tribunal system has moved even further away from the idea of a speedy and informal industrial jury to resolve employment disputes".

It informs us that "Until today employment tribunals have been free of charge to all users. But from now on a worker who wants to issue a claim in the employment tribunal will have to pay a fee to do so".

The article further explains "For ‘Type A’ claims (mostly the minor ones) the claimant will have to pay an issue fee of œ160 and unless the claim is settled beforehand a hearing fee of œ230. For ‘Type B’ claims which cover everything else including in particular and fair dismissal discrimination and whistleblowing the issue fee is œ250 and the hearing fee is œ950."

It goes on to say "To put this in context 2011/12 the median award of compensation for unfair dismissal was œ4560. Although the employer will probably be awarded to reimburse the fees to the claimant if he or she wins that’s quite a big ‘if’. A stake of œ1200 in respect of the total Type B fees payable is a lot to gamble on what in most cases will be at best a relatively modest return."

The HR Magazine article mentioned above also tells us that "A lot else has changed since the right not to be unfairly dismissed was created in 1971 and the industrial tribunals were given the task of enforcing it. First and foremost the volume and complexity of employment law has expanded exponentially. The primary drivers here have been the introduction over a period of more than 40 years of laws to protect the quality coupled with EU requirements to legislate on matters such as working time and collective redundancy consultation."
