Evans v Parasol Ltd and Another: EAT 23 Jul 2009

EAT PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE
Striking-out/dismissal
JURISDICTIONAL POINTS
Agency relationships
Striking out of agency worker’s claim for outstanding wages inappropriate in the light of the legal and factual complexity of such cases; and also of an email from the employer found by the Claimant shortly after the hearing, which the Tribunal ought to have admitted on an application for review.
Bean J said: ‘The original decision to strike out against the First Respondent had been made on two grounds. One was the Claimant’s statement to the Employment Judge that she considered that Parasol was not liable to pay her any money. With respect to the judge, it is unwise to rely on the view of an unrepresented Claimant as to the law, particularly in an area of such complexity and difficulty as that of agency workers. In any event, what the Claimant said was said without the benefit of the email.’
