Asif v Elmbridge Borough Council - The search for the elusive "reasonably arguable ground of appeal"  EAT
The early stages of the EAT appeal process (Notice of Appeal, sift on the papers, preliminary hearing) can be seen perhaps as a "search for the elusive, arguable ground or, more accurately, a reasonably arguable ground".
Ms Asif was made redundant as part of a reorganisation. She claimed unfair dismissal and a failure to be paid equal pay with a male comparator. An employment tribunal dismissed her claims.
Ms Asif appealed to the EAT, where at a preliminary hearing her appeal was allowed to proceed on the redundancy point only.
