Addaction v Cheema - EAT loath to interfere with exercise of discretion by tribunal on costs application  EAT
An employment tribunal's decision on an application for costs is one of "fact-finding, evaluation and discretion". The EAT will not interfere with an exercise of evaluation or discretion unless it demonstrably involves an error of law.
Project worker Miss Cheema brought claims of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination against registered charity Addaction. Addaction sought a strike out of her claims and, at the start of the Pre-Hearing Review (PHR) to determine that application, Ms Cheema withdrew her disability discrimination claim.
