New Employment Tribunal rules from 29th July

Several important changes will happen to Employment Tribunals at the end of July. Firstly, and most importantly, Tribunal fees are being introduced. In addition, some Employment Tribunal Rules are changing and Compensatory Award limits are changing. Here we’ll run through the changes.

The new rules:

  • A claim from an applicant will be rejected if it is not accompanied by a fee or a fee remission application (which is an application for the fee to be waived).
  • An initial ‘sift’ of all claims and responses will be made by a Judge to decide if a claim or response should be ‘struck out’ and to decide what case management orders are necessary to get the case ready for a hearing.
  • Case-management discussions and pre-hearing reviews will be combined into ‘preliminary’ hearings. Preliminary hearings will conduct the ‘sift’ and also explore the possibility of settlement or alternative dispute resolution to avoid the case going to Tribunal.

Tribunal Fees:

From 29th July 2013 claimants will be required to pay a fee in order to lodge an Employment Tribunal claim and a further fee will be payable in order for the claim to proceed to a hearing. Claims made on or after the 29th July will attract these new fees. Claims already in the system before this date will not attract any fees.
