Key points

In Skiggs v South West Trains Ltd, the EAT holds:

  • The employment tribunal was entitled to hold, on the facts, that an investigative meeting concerning a grievance about an employee who had previously been disciplined was not a disciplinary hearing for the purpose of s.10 of the Employment Relations Act 1999.
  • As the meeting was not a disciplinary hearing, the employee was not entitled to be accompanied, as provided for by s.10.
