Unison has failed with its challenge to Employment Tribunal fees. The Court of Appeal has concluded that it is wrong to infer that the fall off in claimants is down to affordability.
This is despite Lord Justice Underhill observing that the “The decline in the number of claims in the tribunals following the introduction of the fees order is sufficiently startling to merit a very full and careful analysis of its causes”.
The Law Society Gazette has a good account of the issues here, which is worth reading if just for the comments. An earlier blog about Unison's challenge to the introduction of fees can be read here.
