Elliott v The Joseph Whitworth Centre Ltd: EAT 15 Jul 2013

EAT PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE – Striking-out/dismissal
A two year delay in dealing with the Claimant’s claim form, by the Tribunals Service and by inaction of his union, was inordinate and inexcusable. It made a fair trial impossible. The claim was permissibly struck out by the Employment Judge. In reality, his remedy is not in the Employment Tribunal.
