    This decision from the Supreme Court, the highest court in the UK, is the leading decision on "gisting" (providing a claimant with enough information on the allegations against him or her to enable him or her to give instructions to his legal team so that those allegations could be challenged effectively) in closed material procedures in employment tribunals.
