The Court of Appeal has held that where an employee failed to appeal against her dismissal for redundancy, but then sought to raise a grievance, she reasonably believed that a dismissal or disciplinary procedure was ongoing when the original time limit for bringing a tribunal claim expired. The time limit was therefore extended by three months.
