*R (on the application of Unison) v Lord Chancellor (Equality and Human Rights Commission intervening)

Employment tribunal – Procedure. The Divisional Court dismissed the claimant trade union's application for judicial review of the defendant Lord Chancellor's decision to introduce a fees regime for bringing and pursuing claims in the employment tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal. It could not be said that either the principle of effectiveness or equivalence had been breached, nor was it possible so soon after the introduction of the fees regime to reach a conclusion as to objective justification.
