    Overton v Healthcall Services Ltd [2001] All ER (D) 54 (Jul) EAT (0 other reports)

In Overton v Healthcall Services Ltd 4.7.01 EAT 282/01, the EAT upheld the decision of an employment tribunal to revoke its original decision and order the case to be reheard in the light of events that took place after the applicant's employment contract ended. Evidence of post-termination events that show what the relevant facts were before or at the time of termination are admissible only in exceptional circumstances. A classic example is where it shows that other evidence regarding pre-termination events is inaccurate.
