    Yewdall v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions EAT/0071/05 (0 other reports)

Key points

In Yewdall v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions 2.9.05, EAT/0071/05/TM , the EAT holds:

  • The employment tribunal had been correct to dismiss the employee's claim that he had been subjected to a detriment for engaging in trade union activities under s.146 Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 ("TULR(C)A"), as he had not been taking part in trade union activities at the relevant time.
  • All except one of the acts of the employer that the employee complained about were out of time under s.147 TULR(C)A and did not form a continuing act or series of similar acts necessary for a claim.
