Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal in England and Wales, and Scotland charge fees for work that is carried out in the tribunals. HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) wants to make sure that access to tribunals is available for those who cannot afford to pay a fee. A system of fee waivers and reductions, known as the remission system, is available which allows those who cannot afford fees to access to tribunal services free of charge or at a reduced rate. 

Court and Tribunal Fees - do I have to pay them? This Leaflet Includes the EX160 Application for a Fee Remission Form. For court and tribunal fees payable from 7 October 2013.
