Level one claims - a fee of £160 on issue of a claim and £250 hearing fee
Level two claims - a fee of £230 on issue of a claim and £950 hearing fee
Level one claims will consist of more straightforward claims such as unlawful deduction from wages. Level two claims will be more complex claims including unfair dismissal and discrimination.
If the employee cannot afford to pay the fees then they can apply for remission. An employee making a claim can only apply for remission if they are in receipt of specified benefits or their income is below a certain amount.
This significant change may encourage employees to think twice before deciding to take their employer to a tribunal. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
