On 26 July 2017, the Supreme Court handed down judgment in the case of R (Unison) v Lord Chancellor in which the court quashed fees in the Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. Employment Tribunal fees were stopped in light of the judgment and, on 15 November a scheme to refund all those who had paid was launched. A review is being conducted on how we charge fees in light of Unison details on the proposed approach will be published in due course.
