Time limits: "Reasonably practicable" for complainant to meet statutory time limit

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In GMB v Hamm 15.11.00 EAT 246/00, the EAT held that it was "reasonably practicable" for a trade union member complaining of unlawful expulsion from his trade union to bring his claim within the statutory time period, and the claim should not, therefore, have been allowed to proceed. In determining "reasonably practicability", case law on time limits for unfair dismissal is relevant and binding.
