Claimants can claim ET fees from respondents if successful

In Vladimir Portnykh v Nomura International plc UKEAT/0448/13/LA, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) issued a conditional costs order requiring Nomura International PLC to reimburse former employee, Vladimir Portnykh the £1,600 EAT fee he paid to appeal his Employment Tribunal claim.

The general position is that a successful claimant employee should expect to recover the fees he or she paid from the Respondent to make their claim at the Employment Tribunal since the introduction of fees for Employment Tribunal claims last year.
