Direct Timber Ltd v Hayward - Appeal against refusal of review  EAT
Mr Hayward complained (mainly) of unfair dismissal. The employer wrongly understood that the claim was for just £300 and did not respond to the claim. Judgment in default of response was entered. The employer only realised that the claim was for £15K on the last day allowed for applying for a review of the default judgment (under rule 33 of the tribunal rules of procedure 2004) and did not put in a proper review application.
A chairman at the Leicester employment tribunal refused to allow a review.
