Court: Employment Appeal Tribunal

Recorder Burke QC, Mr N Willis and Mr T Thomas

Representation Raymond Hill (instructed by the Treasury Solicitor) for G.
  Tariq Sadiq (instructed by Lees Lloyd Whitley) for the employer.
Judgment Dates: 22 January 2002


Employment tribunal - Procedure - Decision - Employment tribunal erring in law - Tribunal accepting error but refusing to review decision - Tribunal holding counsel should have anticipated decision or acted immediately on discovering error - Whether review should have been granted by tribunal.

The Case

An appeal against a refusal of the employment tribunal to grant a review in circumstances where they had clearly erred in law was allowed; as there was only one possible outcome of the case, the appeal would be allowed rather than the case remitted, and the appropriate amount of compensation would be substituted for the tribunal's order.
