Massive changes to employment tribunals made by the government mean that access to workplace justice will be denied to millions. The changes are designed to stop working people seeking compensation from employers.
Tribunal fees are being introduced – you will have to pay £250 just to register a case. And then up to £950 more before you even get to a hearing. Appeals will now cost up to £1,600. Also witnesses’ expenses will no longer be paid.
Unite has always argued that workplace rights should start from day one, but the government has listened to bosses who want to be able to sack workers at will. Take action now to stand up for your rights at work.
