In Lawson v Serco Ltd, it was decided that the employer carried on business in England and Wales, so the tribunal did have jurisdiction to hear his claim even though he worked exclusively on Ascension Island. Bryant v The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (where jurisdiction to hear an unfair dismissal claim was denied) was decided on the basis of a narrow ground raised on appeal and did not consider reg. 11, and does not therefore conflict with the decision in Lawson.
