    R v Secretary of the Central Office of the Employment Tribunals (England and Wales) ex parte Public Concern at Work [2000] IRLR 658 HC (0 other reports)

In R v Secretary of the Central Office of the Employment Tribunals, ex parte Public Concern at Work 19.4.00 High Court, the High Court concludes that the particulars of an originating application (IT1) that the Secretary is generally required to enter in the public register must include: the applicant's and the respondent's names; the date the application was made and received; the relief sought; and a summary of each of the grounds of the claim sufficient to enable a member of the public exercising the right of inspection to identify the gist of those grounds. The Secretary may perform this duty in one of two ways: by placing a copy of the IT1 on the register; or by preparing an appropriate précis of the IT1 and placing that on the register.
