    COT3 bars later claim

    In Jhingoree v Debenhams plc an Ashford industrial tribunal rules that a race applicant could not bring proceedings because the wording of a COT3 entered into in respect of her earlier race discrimination claim was wide enough to constitute an agreement by the applicant not to proceed with a later claim which was in existence at the time the agreement was completed.

    No duty to ensure fair settlement

    A tribunal is not entitled to set aside an agreement between the parties on grounds that the conciliation officer has mistakenly advised or informed the parties of their rights under the law or as to the adequacy or otherwise of the settlement, rules the Fair Employment Tribunal (President: J E Maguire) in McAllister v Old Moat Inn and another.
