This report relates to 1 case(s)

unfair dismissal | timing of appeal | reasonableness

In Sovereign Business Integration plc v Trybus EAT/0107/07, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that the timing of an appeal was not reasonable, as required by the general requirements in the Employment Act 2002, Schedule 2, paragraph 13, and the employee's dismissal was therefore automatically unfair under the Employment Rights Act 1996, section 98A.

Mr Trybus was dismissed for unauthorised absence.
