Scottish employment tribunal fees ban

Following the recent Scottish parliament election results the SNP won’t be able to form a majority Government but Nicola Sturgeon will push forward with the SNP’s manifesto commitments.

What are the SNP’s employment law manifesto pledges?

To ‘continue to make the case for employment law to be transferred to Scotland’.

‘Support new mothers and their children with a new Maternity and Early Years Allowance’

To ‘abolish fees for employment tribunals’.

“Judicial, legislative and administrative responsibility for currently reserved tribunals will be transferred to Scotland, bringing them into the Scottish Tribunals – starting with employment tribunals. Once devolved, we will abolish fees for employment tribunals.”
