The Case

Appeals against interlocutory orders made by the employment tribunal were no different from appeals against substantive decisions and the jurisdiction of the Employment Appeal Tribunal was limited to correcting errors of law by the tribunal below. In the instant case, where there had been no error of law in the directions order made by the tribunal, the appeal tribunal had no jurisdiction to arrive at some different procedural order.
