LONDON - The Supreme Court has ruled that employment tribunal fees are illegal, in a victory for the trade union Unison who brought the appeal against the government.
The fees had led to a 79% reduction in cases going to tribunals over three years.
The government has said it will take "immediate steps" to stop employment tribunal fees and refund claimants who have previously been charged.
The court said: "The Fees Order is unlawful under both domestic and EU law because it has the effect of preventing access to justice. Since it had that effect as soon as it was made, it was therefore unlawful and must be quashed."
Dominic Raab, the justice minister said: "We will take immediate steps to stop charging fees in employment tribunals and put in place arrangements to refund those who have paid. We will also further consider the detail of the judgment."
