During this quarter, 33% of disposals were dismissed upon withdrawal; 19% were Acas conciliated settlements, 17% were withdrawn, 13% were struck out and 9% were successful at hearing.

The MoJ reports that 59 applications for refunds of tribunal fees were received (down from 140 in the first quarter of this year) and 170 refund payments were made with a total value of £364,000.  Since the launch of the refund scheme in October 2017, 22,000 refund payments have been made with a total value of £18 million.
