Jakpa v London Underground Ltd & Ors
Exceptional grounds for strike out during hearing
Mr Jakpa appealed against the ET decision striking out his claims brought against his former employer, London Underground and 3 named employees (the Respondents). The appeal was sifted to a full hearing on paper on certain specified grounds. The ET struck out the claims under ET rule 18(7)(c)(d) and (f), notably ground (f); a fair hearing was, in the view of the ET, no longer possible. Mr Jakpa appealed.
