Sunderland City Council v Brennan and Others: EAT 2 May 2012

EAT PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE – Contribution
PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE – Disclosure
(1) An employment tribunal has no jurisdiction to determine claims for contribution under the Civil Liability (Contribution) Act 1978 between persons jointly or concurrently liable for damage caused by an act of unlawful discrimination. Nor in any event does the 1978 Act create such a right as between such persons.
(2) The employment tribunal had been entitled to order the Claimants to disclose the settlement agreement between them and one set of respondents as being relevant to the issue between them and the remaining respondents, inasmuch as any sums recoverable under the settlement from the former would fall to be taken into account if they were to succeed and were entitled to compensation against the latter.
