Rooney v Leicester City Council (Practice and Procedure): EAT 7 Oct 2021

The employment tribunal erred in law in holding that the claimant was not a disabled person. The employment tribunal erred in law in striking out the claimant’s discrimination claims without adequately analysing them, and gave insufficient reasons with the result that the claimant could not know why the claims had been struck out. The employment tribunal erred in refusing the claimant’s application to amend to claim protected disclosure detriment, principally on the ground that such a claim would be out of time, without giving any consideration to the claimant’s explanation for the delay in making the application. The claim was remitted to the employment tribunal.
