The Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal Fees (Amendment) Order 2015
Clarification concerning the fee payable for an employer's contract claim
This Order amends the Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal Fees Order 2013 (S.I. 2013/1893, which governs the fees payable in employment tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal.
Article 11 is amended to clarify that the fee payable for an employer's contract claim, if made by way of application as part of the response to an employee's contract claim, is always charged by reference to the fee for a type A claim even where the employee's contract claim is brought together with one or more claims which attract a higher fee (type B claims).
An amendment is made in Schedule 1, in column 1 of the table (fee(s) payable by applicant) to reflect a change in terminology in the rules of procedure in employment tribunals. The term "default judgment", used in those rules to describe the disposal of undefended claims, has been replaced by "rule 21 judgment". A definition of that term is also inserted.
