Muschett v London Borough of Hounslow: EAT 6 Aug 2007

EAT Practice and procedure
Time for appealing
On hearing live evidence on appeals from decisions of the Registrar refusing extensions of time to lodge Notices of Appeal, three were dismissed and one was allowed in exceptional circumstances. These included the fact that an appeal of sorts was put in in time, the Claimant’s native Ibo (Igbo) language, difficulties in seeking legal advice, the earlier Employment Tribunal history and that it could not be said the substantive appeal had no merit.
The EAT’s practice in such cases was explained.
