EAT Ratio Practice and Procedure – Appellate jurisdiction/Reasons/Burns-Barke.
When a Judgment of an Employment Tribunal was not received by the Claimant’s solicitor until the 42nd day after its promulgation, due to no fault of the solicitor, and all reasonable steps were taken to ensure a Notice of Appeal was filed within 14 days thereafter, it was right, following a contested hearing with live evidence explaining the circumstances, to exercise discretion to allow it to be validated.
