Employment Tribunal claims and Tribunal fees
If you have a claim such as unfair/constructive dismissal, non payment of wages or unlawful discrimination, and have exhausted ACAS Early Conciliation without an agreement being reached, you can file a claim at an employment tribunal.
You must pay a tribunal fee with your claim form, unless eligible for remission if you are on a low income and have minimal savings.
There are two types of tribunal fees:
- Type A prescribed claims (e.g. unauthorised deductions from wages): £160 is payable with your claim form and a further £230 on a specified date prior to the hearing.
- Type B (all other more complex claims, including unfair dismissal and discrimination): £250 is payable with your claim form and a further £950 on a specified date prior to the hearing.
We can advise on whether you are eligible for remission and what fees you will have to pay. We can also assist in preparing your claim form and your case for any tribunal hearing and on negotiating settlement.
Some claims can be brought while you are still employed; however, there are deadlines for bringing claims. It is therefore important to act without delay if you are thinking of bringing a claim.
