Compensation: Freezing order granted pending outcome of tribunal hearing

  • expand disabled

    Amicus v Dynamex Friction Ltd and another [2005] IRLR 724 HC (0 other reports)

Key points

In Amicus v Dynamex Friction Ltd and another [2005] IRLR 724, the High Court holds:

  • It has jurisdiction to grant a freezing order to protect assets that might otherwise be dissipated by the employer to frustrate an award of compensation by an employment tribunal.
  • The fact that the ongoing proceedings were in the tribunal rather than the High Court or county court did not make any difference, as the High Court has the power under s.37(1) of the Supreme Court Act 1981 to grant an injunction in all cases where it is just and convenient to do so.
