Fall in tribunal claims

The number of employment tribunal claims fell by almost 20% in the quarter following the introduction of fees in 2013.

Official quarterly employment tribunal statistics, published by the Ministry of Justice, showed a 17% reduction in claims submitted between July and September 2013, compared with the same three months in 2012. This included a 42% decrease in unfair dismissal claims.

The statistics are the first to be published since the introduction of fees in the Employment Tribunal on 29 July 2013.

The fees were introduced in order to deter people from making spurious claims. Under the fee structure, a simple claim such as unlawful deductions from wages costs £160 to issue and £230 for the case to be heard. More complex claims, such as unfair dismissal and discrimination, cost £250 to be issued and £950 for the hearing.
