Employment Tribunal fees refund scheme starts

The government has launched the first phase of the employment tribunal fee refund scheme following the Supreme Court decision in July that Tribunal fees were unlawful. In this initial phase, approximately 1,000 eligible parties will be contacted to apply for reimbursement. Full roll-out of the scheme is expected in the next month.

As well as being refunded their original fee, successful applicants will also be paid interest of 0.5%, calculated from the date of the original payment up until the refund date.
