Robinson v The Post Office [2000] IRLR 804 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Time limits: Extension of time refused where incomplete internal appeal caused delay

    15 February 2001

    A delay caused by an incomplete internal appeals process will not invariably lead to an extension of time to bring a claim under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 ("the DDA"), holds the EAT in Robinson v The Post Office.

  • Internal appeal no excuse for late claim

    1 December 2000

    The EAT has ruled in Robinson v The Post Office that an unexhausted internal appeals procedure is not necessarily an acceptable reason for presenting a discrimination complaint to a tribunal outside the statutory time limit of three months.
