Employment Tribunal Claims Drop by More than 50% after Tribunal Fee Introduction

The number of employment claims being accepted by the Employment Tribunal Service between July and August of 2013 dropped by over 50%, according to Hugh James Solicitors.

The sharp drop in the number of claims being accepted is thought to be a result of the recent introduction of tribunal fees earlier in the year; which introduced a minimum fee of £250 to lodge a claim and £950 for a hearing.

According to Hugh James Solicitors the number of claims accepted by the Employment Tribunal Service fell from 17,153 in July to 7,448 in August, highlighting a dramatic drop in the number of claims being accepted and filled.
