Jurisdictional Points – Early conciliation provisions
The Employment Judge erred in law in:
(1) Examining the process prior to the grant of an early conciliation certificate in order to assess whether the Claimant was barred from instituting proceedings by section 18A(8) of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996.
(2) Holding that it was a mandatory requirement of an early conciliation certificate that it must name only one Respondent, such that the Claimant was barred from instituting proceedings by section 18A(8) of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996.
Science Warehouse Ltd v Mills  ICR 252; Drake International Systems Ltd v Blue Arrow Ltd  ICR 445; Mist v Derby Community Health Services NHS Trust  ICR 543 and Compass Group UK and Ireland Ltd v Morgan  ICR 73 considered and applied.
