Dispute resolution procedures: Extension of time for unfair dismissal complaint

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Towergate London Market Ltd v Harris [2008] IRLR 536, the Court of Appeal held that the time limit for presentation of an unfair dismissal complaint was extended by three months for an employee who did not appeal against her dismissal, but subsequently raised a grievance about her selection for redundancy. At the point when the normal time limit expired, she reasonably believed that a dismissal procedure was ongoing.
