Sajid v Sussex Muslim Society: 2002

It was not an abuse of process to seek to pursue an employment claim in the High Court where the claim begun in the tribunal was for breach of contract, unfair dismissal or redundancy, and the total amount of the claim might exceed the tribunal’s financial limits for such awards. The claimant must make it clear that he would wish to rely upon the tribunal’s findings in the High Court. A formal court order was made to show withdrawal of the claim.
