star this property answer text We have received no representations about the impact of Employment Tribunal fees on whistleblowers since fees were introduced in July 2013. Fees were introduced following a consultation exercise in 2012. A summary of the representations received, including on whistleblowers, and the Government’s response, are set out in “Charging Fees in Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal” which is available on the Ministry of Justice website at: https://consult.justice.gov.uk/digital-communications/et-fee-charging-regime-cp22-2011/results/employment-tribunal-fees-consultation-response.pdf Fee remissions are available so that those who are unable to afford to pay the fee are not prevented from accessing the Tribunal. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Employment tribunal cases can vary in nature and complexity and some can last over more than one year, particularly where collective disputes are involved. Claims in employment tribunals can be classified into either single or multiple claims. Multiple claims are where two or more people bring proceedings arising out of the same facts, usually against a common employer. Where claims are grouped as multiples, they are processed administratively and managed judicially together. We call these groups of claims ‘multiple claims cases’. One multiple claim case would therefore involve two or more claims. Claims can be disposed of in a variety of ways, including being rejected either because they are out of time, or have no reasonable chance of success. A minority of cases are disposed of at a full hearing.</p><p>There are therefore many ways the term an employment tribunal case can be interpreted. The costs directly attributable to each claim / case are not collected, as current systems do not allow us to link staff, judicial and other costs to claims / cases. As a result, it is not possible to provide average costs per case over the last three years on a comparable basis.</p>
