Aryeetey v Tuntum Housing Association - Mistake by Chairman is proper ground for extension of time limits [2007] EAT

Mr Aryeetey, an accountant, was dismissed after raising concerns about certain practices within the Housing Association. He complained of automatic unfair dismissal and detriment short of dismissal - based on "whistleblowing". The tribunal originally rejected the detriment element of the claim, since Mr Aryeetey had not submitted a grievance.

The EAT dismissed the appeal.
