Kudjodji v LIDL Ltd - Alteration of judgements [2011] EAT

It is a cardinal principle that once a final judgement or order has been drawn up and perfected under rule 28 of the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2004, it cannot be altered except by appeal or, where there is a power, on review.

At a pre hearing review in January 2010 Mr Kudjodji's claim for unfair dismissal was judged to be in time. Written judgement followed in February.  In July the Judge decided to review her own decision under rule 34(5) of the Rules of Procedure after she became aware of new case law. There was no alteration in her decision which was promulgated in October 2010. The decision was not appealed.
