Employment tribunal fees to increase for certain claims

Year Published: 2014

The Courts and Tribunals Fees (Miscellaneous Amendments) Order 2014 will come into force on 6 April 2014. The main effect of the order is to reclassify certain claims as “Type B” claims, thus attracting higher fees. The purpose of this legislation is to rectify a mistake in the original legislation where the claims were originally categorised as “Type A.”

Type A claims typically attract fees of £160 issue fee and £230 hearing fee. Where as, Type B claims attract much higher fees of £250 issue fee and £950 hearing fee.

The claims to be reclassified are:

  • Equal pay;
  • Sex equality in pension schemes;
  • Failure to inform or consult under TUPE;
  • Failure to allow compensatory rest under the Working Time Regulations 1998;
  • Breach of the right to request time off for training.
