Hi I have just heard that I lost my age discrimination case at an ET. Can I have help to appeal and how much would this cost
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I live in Milton Keynes and I am now retired
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: None as yet
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Just that the judgement appears to be one sided for the Respondent as I suffered 3 years of discrimination and pressure to retire with an opportunity of a job offered to a younger less experienced candidate.

What do you specifically want to know about this?

Without the requested information, I can only provide you with general information, which hopefully will still be useful to you. If you wanted to appeal a decision from the Employment Tribunal, you Cn only do so on a point of law. Foe example, you cannot appeal because you disagree with the outcome and are not happy about the decision. You must find evidence that the Employment Tribunal had applied the law incorrectly in the first place and then you need to appeal on those grounds. That is why appeals become rather complex and technical and would usually require formal legal representation.

In terms of costs, you have to pay £400 to lodge the appeal and then if you are proceeding to a hearing, you also need to pay a £1,200 hearing fee.

Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
