EAT PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE – Bias, misconduct and procedural irregularity
The Claimant, a practising barrister employed by a solicitors firm, was a litigant in person in her sex discrimination claims which all failed. In considering the claims, the Tribunal held that the credibility of the parties was central and found against the Claimant in three relevant respects based, in part, upon what she put in her written submission. There was no breach of the principle of equality of arms, the Respondent being represented by leading counsel, in holding against her what she had written in her submission. No other complaint of unfair treatment was made. The Claimant had a fair trial.
