In Ali v Sovereign Buses (London) Ltd EAT/0274/06, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that the European Convention on Human Rights does not apply where an employee refuses to say anything at a disciplinary hearing, on the grounds that to do so might incriminate him or her in ongoing criminal proceedings.
