Costs warning put "undue pressure" on unfair dismissal claimant

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The Court of Appeal has issued a warning to employment tribunals not to be too hasty to issue costs warnings to people who bring unfair dismissal claims.

The move comes in a ruling in Gee v Shell UK Ltd, where the applicant, who had alleged unfair dismissal, abandoned her claim because she feared losing her home if the case was unsuccessful.
