Statutory dispute resolution procedures: Delay in appeal hearing did not render dismissal automatically unfair

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Selvarajan v Wilmot and others [2008] EWCA Civ 862, the Court of Appeal held that a failure to comply with the general requirements of the statutory dispute resolution procedure cannot be equated with a failure to complete the procedure. Thus, an unreasonable delay between dismissal and an appeal hearing did not render the dismissal automatically unfair, because the statutory dismissal and disciplinary procedure had been completed.
