Gwara v Mid Essex Primary Care Trust: EAT 17 Jul 2013

EAT Practice and Procedure : Bias, Misconduct and Procedural Irregularity – Costs – The Employment Tribunal did not comply with rule 38(9) of the Employment Tribunal Rules of Procedure (Schedule 1 to the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2004) in that it did not afford the Claimant an opportunity – which means a fair and reasonable opportunity – to give reasons why the order for costs should not be made. Other criticisms of Employment Tribunal’s reasoning also justified.
