No right to postponement pending Seymour-Smith

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Megid v ITS Ltd the EAT rules that it is up to each industrial tribunal whether or not to postpone the hearing of an employee with less than two years' service who wishes to complain of unfair dismissal on the basis of the decision in R v Secretary of State for Employment ex parte Seymour-Smith. The importance of this is enhanced by the House of Lords' apparent decision to refer Seymour-Smith to Europe.
