A surprise ruling by seven justices overturned judgements by the High Court in 2013, unanimously backing the appeal by Unison that the fess were introduced unlawfully.
In July 2013 tribunal fees were introduced meaning claimants had to pay up to £1,200. Unison claimed these fees prevented thousands of employees, especially those on a low income, from “access to justice” if badly treated by employers.
A refund of £32 Million is expected.
