Tribunal Fees to be Scrapped says Labour

 11th Sep 2014

Labour will abolish the current employment tribunal fees regime if elected in May 2015, shadow business secretary, Chuka Umunna, told delegates at the Trade Union Congress (TUC) conference this week.

Describing the current procedure as “unfair and unsustainable”, Umunna said a future Labour government would reform the Employment Tribunal system to ensure that “all workers have proper access to justice”.

The number of single claims made to Employment Tribunals has fallen 70% in a year, according to the latest figures from the Ministry of Justice.

Umunna said prohibitive costs were “locking people out of the justice they are entitled to”.
