Simplified employment tribunal fee remission process

2015-11-05 chris posted:

HMCTS has developed a simpler and faster fee remission process in the employment tribunals.

The new process, which is called "Help with Fees", came into force on 28 October 2015. Under the new scheme, applicants self-assess their eligibility for fee remission and are no longer required to submit paperwork in support of their application. Instead, HMCTS check directly with the Department for Work and Pensions whether an applicant is eligible for fee remission. The new form and guidance are still referred to under their previous names of EX160 and EX160a and are available online as well as in courts.
