I’m over the moon that employment tribunal fees will be scrapped. Calls to helplines about sexual harassment are increasing but the huge fee means the number reporting it has fallen. The fees were clearly a deterrent to people who had legitimate claims to make and it’s great that no one will be priced out of justice now.
This is really fantastic news and all credit to Unison for taking on and winning this fight! The next step is to ensure that time restrictions on claims are extended, so those who have missed out on justice can now make retrospective claims.
