Question written on 07/02/2002

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans she has to introduce a fee for employees wishing to take their employers to an employment tribunal.

Answered by Alan Johnson

We have no plans to introduce such a fee. The Government Response to the “Routes to Resolution” consultation sets out the reasons for not taking forward the proposal to introduce a charging regime for employment tribunals. A copy of the Government Response has been lodged with the Libraries of the House.
