Employment Tribunal Fees – Presidential Case Management Order
You will recall the Supreme Court’s decision in relation to Employment Tribunal fees two weeks ago. The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals in England and Scotland have today issued a Case Management Order.
The Case Management order indicates that all claims or applications brought in reliance upon the decision of the Supreme Court will need to await the decisions of Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service in relation to the implications of that decision.
Reference is made to Rules 11 and 40 of the Employment Tribunals Constitution and Rules of Procedure. These sections deal with the process for rejecting or dismissing claims that do not have the proper fee paid.
It seems as if the Order will have the objective of staying applications until the Courts and Tribunal service can work out the mechanics of handling the likely level of claims.
