Repeal of Employment Tribunal Fees

Dear Minister
Please repeal the introduction of fees into the Employment Tribunal system.
Potentially, this impacts on every working person in the UK and is demonstrably unfair to the average waged worker. It upsets the ‘level playing field’ that the tribunals were formed to provide.

Why is this important?

The introduction of fees into the Employment Tribunal system has reduced the access to justice of many deserving people. The large reduction in claims, as shown by official statistics, is not mainly, as suggested, the elimination of ‘vexatious’ litigation but rather the actual prevention of access to justice of vulnerable persons.
In a civilised society this is simply unacceptable and must stop at once. It is against ‘natural justice’.

We ask that this divisive decision be reversed by removing fees, thus restoring traditional ‘fair play’ into the tribunal system.
