Internal appeal no excuse for late claim

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The EAT has ruled in Robinson v The Post Office that an unexhausted internal appeals procedure is not necessarily an acceptable reason for presenting a discrimination complaint to a tribunal outside the statutory time limit of three months.

Mr Robinson was absent from work, having been diagnosed with chronic discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), a condition causing skin rashes and sensitivity to light.
