HM Revenue and Customs v Garau: EAT 24 Mar 2017

EAT Practice and Procedure : Application/Claim – Preliminary issues
The early conciliation certificate provisions introduced from 6 April 2014 do not allow for more than one certificate of early conciliation per ‘matter’ to be issued by ACAS. If more than one such certificate is issued, a second or subsequent certificate is outside the statutory scheme and has no impact on the limitation period. The Employment Judge was wrong to hold otherwise.
