The Case

Where the employment tribunal's decision to limit disclosure of the employee's psychiatric records to a period after a certain date had been flawed, because it had not taken account of the issues upon which expert evidence either would or might be required, that decision would be set aside and it would be directed that a case management discussion take place at which the question of full disclosure of medical records should be considered afresh.
