Brechin City Football Club & ors v Campbell - Amending response to claim  EAT
Mr Campbell was dismissed from his job as manager of Brechin City Football Club. He sued the club and bearing in mind that it is an unincorporated association also joined 8 members of the Management Committee in his claim. The claim was for "ordinary" unfair dismissal, "automatic" unfair dismissal (on grounds that the statutory dismissal procedures had not been complied with) and breach of contract. The Club suubmitted a response (ie defence) but it was out of time, by one day, and the tribunal rejected it. The Club applied for its response to be admitted out of time.
