Abbey National Plc v Bascetta - Existence of appeal is not itself grounds to postpone remedy hearing [2008] EAT

Ms Bascetta succeeded before Bedford Employment Tribunal in claims of unfair dismissal and victimisation. Her sex discrimination claims were dismissed. The liability judgment was given on 11 June 2008 and a remedies hearing was listed for 9 December 2008.

Both parties appealed to the EAT against the liability judgment. When the appeal hearing was listed for mid-February 2009, Abbey National asked that the tribunal remedies hearing be postponed until after that date to save costs, especially as expert witnesses were to be called. Mrs Bascetta objected and the tribunal refused to order a postponement of the remedies hearing.
