Employment tribunal Jurisdiction. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) allowed the employee's appeal against a decision by the employment tribunal to refuse her an extension of time pursuant to reg 15(2) of the (Dispute Resolution) Regulations 2004, (the Regulations), for bringing her claim of unfair dismissal. The EAT decided that the reference in reg 15(2) of the Regulations to 'the substance of the Tribunal complaint' included the substance of the employee's complaint of unfair dismissal on the basis that that phrase referred not to the cause of action, but to the factual matrix from which the cause of action derived.
