This post was written by: Aston Bond Law Firm

As of 29 July 2013, employees wishing to bring a claim at an Employment Tribunal will have to pay Employment Tribunal fees.

The Employment Tribunal fees shall be divided into two groups:

  • Type A – for money claims i.e. redundancy and salary arrears
  • Type B – for all other claims i.e. unfair dismissal and discrimination

Claimants will have to pay the fees in two stages; initially when issuing an Employment Tribunal claim and secondly 4 – 6 weeks before the final hearing.

The Employment Tribunal fees are as follows:

  • Type A issue fee – £160
  • Type A hearing fee – £230


  • Type B issue fee – £250
  • Type B hearing fee – £950
