      In Serco Ltd v Lawson; Foreign and Commonwealth Office (interested party), the Court of Appeal holds that an employment tribunal did not have jurisdiction to hear an unfair dismissal claim by an employee based abroad. Regulation 11(5) of the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2001, relied upon by the EAT as determining jurisdiction, did not, in fact, have that effect.
