Claims and fees
Information you need to know before making a claim to an Employment Tribunal or responding to a claim against you.
New Claimants in Northern Ireland should apply to the Industrial Tribunals and Fair Employment Tribunal, Northern Ireland.
From Monday 29 July, fees will be payable where you make an employment tribunal claim.
A summary of the fees structure and further information can be found in the Employment Fees Factsheet. (PDF)
Leaflets explaining what you need to know about fees (and the remission scheme which can reduce or remove the requirement to pay a fee) are available through our Form Finder service.

- T435 – Employment tribunal fees for individuals
- T436 – Employment tribunal fees for groups and multiples
- T437 – Employment Appeal Tribunal fees
- EX160A – Court and Tribunal Fees: Do I have to pay them? This is the booklet that provides details for claiming a remission of fees.
