The General Secretary of UNISON described the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold his trade union’s challenge to employment tribunal fees as “the most significant judicial intervention in the history of British employment law” (R (on the application of UNISON) v Lord Chancellor  UKSC 51) (see box “UNISON’s litigation”). Certainly it was a ground-breaking decision; the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the government acted unlawfully when it introduced the fees in 2013.
Before the introduction of the fees regime, access to employment tribunals was free of charge. Since 2013, there has been a dramatic decline of almost 70% in the number of tribunal claims submitted each year, and a particularly marked decline in lower-value discrimination claims.
