Employment Tribunal Claims Plummet

 23rd Mar 2014

On 29 July 2013, fees became payable by employees bringing tribunal claims. The Government’s aim in introducing fees is to transfer around 33% of the £74m cost per annum of running the tribunal system from the taxpayer to those who use the system. 

However, it is widely believed that the main aim of the new fees was to drive down the overall number of claims.

Quarterly figures from the Tribunals Service, covering the period October to December 2013, show that 9,801 employment tribunal claims were received. This was 79% fewer than in the same period in 2012, with only one tribunal claim in five still being filed.
