Cummings v Compass Group UK & Ireland Ltd t/a Scholarest - Amending form ET1  EAT
An employment tribunal chairman refused to hear a claim by an employee whose surname had been mistyped on the tribunal claim form ET1. He refused to allow the form to be corrected. The employee's correct name was Mrs W E Cowings but it appeared on the ET1 form as Mrs W E Cummings. She appealed to the EAT which was clearly not impressed by the tribunal chairman's reasoning or decision.
