Abiola v North Yorkshire County Council & Others - all claims and response forms must be included when lodging appeal with EAT - EAT 29.5.08

An employment tribunal decision rejected Mr Abiola's various claims, covered by six claim forms (ET1) and four responses (ET3). His appeal to the EAT was received on the 42nd day of the 42 days allowed for making an appeal. When Mr Abiola rang the EAT to check he was told his appeal "looked alright". It was then discovered that he had included only 2 ET1s and 1 ET3. His appeal was not, therefore, properly constituted.
