The Supreme Court has ruled that fees paid by those bringing employment tribunal claims are unlawful.

Fees were introduced by the government in 2013 with the aim of reducing the number of ‘bogus’ cases made. This introduction has seen claims reduce by 79% in three years.

This new ruling will likely see a rise in employment tribunal claims being made. Employers need to ensure that they are maintaining compliance and day to day HR issues are dealt with correctly.

If you are a client of AHR Consultants and actively seek advice from our consultants, you have significantly less risk. Those clients with Legal Expenses Insurance will also be covered in case of a tribunal claim being made (terms and conditions apply).

If you are in any doubt please call AHR Consultants on 0345 076 2288 and we can put a comprehensive HR system in place for your business.
