Join us on 10 August 2017 to consider and discuss the recent Supreme Court decision in R (UNISON) v Lord Chancellor [2017] UKSC 51 which overturned Employment Appeal Tribunal Fees Order 2013. In an extraordinary judgment, the Supreme Court denounced the Fee regime as “unlawful” and “unconstitutional”. The judgment is a landmark result, which will see the government compensate claimants for the fees they incurred whilst the Order was in force as well as reinvigorating access to justice in Employment disputes.

Catherine Rayner will be speaking on the journey to the Supreme Court’s decision and analysing the commentary of the Supreme Court on the regime. Elaine Banton will chair the discussion about the ramifications of the decision and what we can expect in the market or from the Government in response.

We will close the evening with bubbles and other refreshments.

Date: Thursday 10th August

Time: 5.30pm registration for 6pm

Location: 7 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4BS
