The Case

The Employment Appeal Tribunal had to be very careful not to interfere with a decision of an employment tribunal both on an issue of whether it was just and equitable to extend the time limit or on reasonable practicability for presentation of a complaint, where the tribunal could not be shown to have misdirected themselves on the law and where the decision was essentially a factual one.
