Extension of Time : Reasonably Practicable
The Employment Judge did not err in holding that it was reasonably practicable for the Claimant to present his claim for unfair dismissal in time when the date for presentation was missed due to the fault of his solicitor. A questionable observation that the Claimant could have sought advice elsewhere when he had been told his claim was being dealt with did not affect the basis of the decision of the Employment Judge.
