Tribunal fees do not breach EU Law, the ECHR or the Equality Act 2010


Re: R (Unison) (No.2) v The Lord Chancellor, Equality & Human Rights Commission intervening [2014] EWHC 4198 (Admin)

From August 2013 if a worker brought a claim to the ET or the EAT he/she had to pay a fee to the tribunal. This was a challenge to the introduction of the fee scheme. Held: dismissing the appeal, the introduction of the fees was held to be in accordance with EU law, the ECHR and the Equality Act 2010.

Karon Monaghan QC and Mathew Purchase were in involved in this case.
