Procedure: No extension of time while grievance procedure is being used

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The Court of Appeal in Apelogun-Gabriels v London Borough of Lambeth [2002] IRLR 116 holds that there is no general principle that it will be just and equitable to extend time for bringing a tribunal claim where the applicant is using the employer's internal grievance procedure. The fact that the employee was awaiting the outcome of grievance proceedings is only one factor to be taken into account.
