Drysdale v Department Of Transport (The Maritime And Coastguard Agency) - ET need not satisfy itself as to Claimant's rep's capacity
The Employment Tribunal has no duty to satisfy itself of the capacity of a Claimant's representative in ordinary circumstances.
The hearing of this two day tribunal case had not progressed to completion by 4pm on day two, the Claimant having only just finished her evidence. With three of the Respondent's witnesses to come, it was evident further time was necessary. The Tribunal settled on a further two days, some four months into the future.
