After the Supreme Court decided that Employment Tribunal Fees are unlawful, the rules on bringing claims which are out of time because people were unable to pay the high Tribunal fees have been relaxed. 

The first Claimant who was time barred due to being unable to pay the fees has been granted permission to bring a new claim. What this means for the numbers of Tribunal claims being brought is yet to be seen but I get the feeling we may be seeing a lot more of these types of cases.
