New presidential case management order lifts stay on post-Unison cases

by Laurie Anstis on August 18, 2017

On 9 August 2017 the President of the Employment Tribunals (England and Wales) issued a case management order staying any claims or applications relying on the outcome of the Unison employment tribunal fees judicial review case in the Supreme Court. A similar order was issued in Scotland.

This was always said to be a temporary stay (a point confirmed in subsequent correspondence) and today a further case management order has been issued lifting the stay.

The order and explanatory notes say that reimbursement of fees and, importantly, applications for reinstatement of claims will be dealt with (where necessary) according to administrative procedures to be announced shortly.
