EF v AB and Others (Practice and Procedure : Restricted Reporting Order): EAT 25 Mar 2015

Restricted order reporting
Disposal of appeal including remission
The Employment Tribunal erred in refusing to extend Restricted Reporting Orders in respect of a Respondent to Employment Tribunal proceedings and a non-party. They failed to carry out the assessment of comparative importance of the Article 8 and Article 10 rights engaged in respect of each of the Appellants. Further, the matters the Employment Tribunal took into account in negating continuing the Restricted Reporting Order were not properly categorised as matters of public interest. In re S(A Child) (Identification: Restrictions on Publication) [2005] 1 AC 593 and F v G Publication [2012] ICR 246 applied. A Restricted Reporting Order made under Section 35(1)(a) Employment Tribunals Act 1996. Jafri v Lincoln College [2014] ICR 920 and Burrell v Micheldever Tyre Services Ltd [2014] ICR 935 considered.
