THE NUMBER of employment tribunal cases is rebounding, after falling when tribunal fees were introduced, according to research released today by Hugh James Solicitors.
There were 4,390 cases in the three months to December 2014, up 16 per cent on the three months to June.
“The cost for launching a claim is between £160 to £250; when they were first introduced it was a shock, but now people are more acclimatised to these fees,” said Hugh James Solicitors partner Emma Burns.
The number of employment tribunal cases is still below the levels before fees were introduced. In the three months to September 2013, there were 10,900 cases.
