What happens if a claimant submits an employment tribunal claim without the required fee?

An employment tribunal claim must be accompanied by either the required issue fee or an application for remission of the fee. If a claimant submits a claim without the fee or a remission application, the claim will be rejected.

If a claimant submits a claim with less than the full amount required for payment of the fee, the tribunal will notify him or her that the outstanding amount must be paid by a specified date. If the full amount is not paid by that date, the tribunal will reject the claim.

If a claimant submits a claim accompanied by an application for remission and the application is refused, the tribunal will notify him or her that the fee must be paid by a specified date and will reject the claim if it is not paid by that date.
