The Manchester Evening News published an article on 29th of July 2013 written by Shelina Begum reporting that "People bringing employment tribunals must now pay a fee for the first time".

The article says that "The changes which have been slammed by the unions will mean employees will have to pay up to œ1200 to have case of unfair dismissal and discrimination heard".

The article reports that the move has been welcomed by some business leaders but that Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said: "What we are seeing today is injustice writ large".

He is also reported to have added that "ministers are putting up insurmountable financial hurdles working people in pursuit of justice" as a means "to keep working people frightened and insecure". He also pledged that Unite will financially support its members to bring claims at employment tribunals.

The above-mentioned article also includes comments from Andy Prendergast of the GMB who is reported to have said: "The imposition of such fees represents the latest in a number of attacks on employment rights by the government. Bad employers are being given the green light to continue exploiting their staff."

However in direct opposition to the thoughts of many unions the article tells us that the Knutsford-based Forum of Private Business has welcomed the introduction of fees for employment tribunals. It says that the Forum’s chief executive Phil Orford said: "Escalating workplace disputes through the tribunal stage is too easy an option for many employees. Hopefully the introduction of fees will make claim and think more carefully before resorting to litigation."
