It has been reported that the Government is considering reintroducing employment tribunal fees.

No specific details have been provided but the Ministry of Justice has said that it is confident that a fee system can be found which does not deny claimants access to justice (the reason the original fee regime was ultimately overturned).

This development follows a written answer provided by the Government earlier this year, in which the Ministry of Justice said it was reviewing how (not whether) it would reintroduce fees.
