Cafagna v ISS Mediclean Ltd & Others - Appeals against strike outs had no prospects of success [2010] EAT

Mr Cafagna brought six claims against ISS Mediclean Ltd & Others (“ISS”) in the Brighton Employment Tribunal for disability discrimination and public interest disclosures (“PID”). These claims were heard at different times, but each was rejected – some were heard and dismissed while others were struck out. The strike outs - at a Pre-Hearing Review (PHR) under Employment Tribunal Rules 2004 Rule 18 - were because Mr Cafagna had been ordered to provide further particulars relating to his disability and exchange evidence but had failed to do so, despite a warning that non-compliance could result in his claim being partially or wholly struck out. Mr Cafagna launched various appeals to the EAT.
