As part of your claim has succeeded the respondent will not be able to make an application for legal costs in this matter. If an application was made it would ultimately be up to the judge to decide what happens and this would not be for a lawyer to comment on this. However, as you have won part of the case then you will have to attend a remedy hearing. This means that you will go in front of a judge and tell them how much money you are claiming for. There are online tools you can use to help you "quantify" your claim. It appears from the judgement that this was a fair hearing to be heard therefore the respondent wouldn't have any grounds for a wasted costs application. In employment tribunal's parties have to pay their own costs and it is not like civil court where you can make an application to have your costs covered if you win part or all of the claim.
