Webinar Employment Tribunal Fees Abolished – What About Time Limits? Webinar (On-Demand)

Overview


The Supreme Court ruling in the Unison case, declaring that the fees charged for employment tribunals were illegal, has profound implications for employment law practitioners. This webinar will examine those implications as far as time limits are concerned, focusing on:

  • Are tribunals likely to accept late claims because of the decision?
  • What are the likely arguments for claims where the time limit depends on what is reasonably practicable?
  • What will determine whether a claim is presented within a reasonable time after the Supreme Court decision?
  • Will the position be different where the time limit can be extended when it is just and equitable to do so?
  • What arguments are likely to be deployed in applying the ‘just and equitable’ test?
  • Are there special arguments for claims of low value?
  • What evidence should employers and claimants provide in dealing with the relevant tests for extension of the time limit?
  • What about claimants who presented claims in the period 2013-17 and were prevented from proceeding because they did not pay the fee?
  • What is the process where a claim was dismissed upon withdrawal?

The webinar will be of value to employment lawyers, HR practitioners and those who advise prospective claimants. It will deal with the leading cases on changes in the law after passing time limits, such as British Coal v Keeble and Biggs v Somerset County Council, but its main focus will be on the practical considerations for both respondents and claimants.
