Exclusions and qualifications: Proof of qualifying service is not precondition to jurisdiction
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Leicester University Students' Union v Mahomed  IRLR 292 EAT (0 other reports)
In Leicester University Students' Union v Mahomed, the EAT holds that, while proof of two years' continuous employment is a precondition to a finding of unfair dismissal, it is not a precondition to an industrial tribunal having jurisdiction to consider such a complaint. Accordingly, a tribunal's finding of unfair dismissal was not made without jurisdiction because it subsequently transpired that the qualifying period had not been served by the complainant.
