In July 2017 the Supreme Court made a decision that employment tribunal fees were unconstitutional and unlawful and had prevented access to justice. Since that decision there are no court fees to pay when making a claim to an Employment Tribunal.
The government had already made a commitment to reimburse claimants who had paid fees prior to the decision. The procedure for claiming money back is not yet in place.
