    Care First Partnership Ltd v Roffey and others [2001] IRLR 85 CA (0 other reports)

The employment tribunals' rules of procedure do not confer a general power to strike out proceedings at the start of a hearing, but before an applicant's evidence has been heard, on the ground that they have no reasonable prospect of success, holds the Court of Appeal in Care First Partnership Ltd v Roffey and others 3.11.00 Court of Appeal. The rule that a tribunal shall conduct hearings in the manner that it considers most appropriate could not be construed as conferring any general power to strike out.
