The ruling from the Supreme Court delivered today, stating that fees for Employment Tribunals are unlawful has far reaching positive consequences for women and Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) people.
Sandra Kerr OBE, Business in the Community Race Equality Director said:
“We welcome today’s ruling, which will end the disproportionate impact of tribunal fees on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees over the last four years. Our Equality, Diversity and Racism in the Workplace report with the University of Manchester recommended the scrapping of tribunal fees, and this was also supported by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Race and Community at the launch of the report earlier this year''.
