Charles v Kuehne & Nagel Ltd - Amending claim  EAT
ET entitled not to allow the Claimant to amend his ET1 in circumstances where the matters sought to be added (discrimination matters) had no causal link to the redundancy selection which formed the basis of his original unfair dismissal claim.
The Claimant had been employed on 1 December 2008 until 6 April 2011 as a large goods driver. He had a road accident on 5 January 2009. In consequence of that he became disabled. The employer had a downturn of work which required selection from amongst their staff of those who were to be dismissed by reason of redundancy. The Claimant was one who was selected.
