Several developments on tribunal fees: each small, but cumulatively worth a mention.
1. Parliament has made an amending statutory instrument, clarifying an ambiguity in the original fees order. It is now clear than an employer counter-claim for breach of contract is charged a 'type A' fee, irrespective of whether the employee is also bringing 'type B' claims.
2. Bristol University have published a research study, Employment Tribunal Claims: Debunking the Myths, which makes some interesting (albeit probably uncontroversial) observations about fees.
3. The always excellent blogger Richard Dunstan has produced apost on how the fee system can be restructured to achieve a much fairer result without spending more government money. Definitely worth reading.
