The Government have now announced its plans for repayment of Employment Tribunal fees paid in connection with hearings prior to the recent Supreme Court decision which declared the fees system unlawful. The cost of the refunds to be made are estimated at £33 million.

A small number of parties will be contacted directly to begin with before the system is opened to all those who may entitled to repayment. It is possible to pre-register for repayment using the email address ethelpwithfees@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk.

If you have any queries about possible refunds or need help making an application, then please contact Alasdair Bryce or Vicky Raymond on 01387 739 000 (option 2).
