Tribunal national security provisions: Employee entitled to gist of evidence despite closed procedure

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Home Office v Tariq [2010] IRLR 1065 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the statutory provisions allowing employment tribunals to adopt closed material procedures in the interests of national security do not breach European law. However, the requirement for a fair hearing means that the claimant must be given the "gist" of any closed material on which the employer will rely.
