      The Court of Appeal gives important guidance on how far tribunals need to go in exploring the circumstances of a claim. Plus cases on protected disclosure, redundancy selection, discrimination by an agent, working time exemptions and constructive dismissal.

In Bowden and others v Tuffnells Parcels Express Ltd 4.10.01 ECJ Case C-133/00, the ECJ holds that all workers in the road transport sector, including office staff, are excluded from the scope of Council Directive 93/104/EC concerning certain aspects of working time.
