Must I pay tribunal fees to bring my unfair dismissal claim?

No. There is no longer a fee to access an employment tribunal, as of July 2017, when a union-backed case at the Supreme Court ruled charging for access to tribunals was unlawful. You will no longer need to pay a fee up front or seek "help with fees" as had previously been the case.
