    Date:
    23 June 2006

    In Madhewoo v NHS Direct UKEAT/0030/06 the Employment Appeal Tribunal holds that dismissal was first contemplated when it was concluded that there was sufficient evidence of gross misconduct to proceed to a disciplinary hearing. As this occurred before 1 October 2004, the unfair dismissal time limit could not be extended.
