Luff v Cobsen-Davies Roofing (Surrey) Ltd  EAT
Letter constituted a grievance
Mrs Luff filed a claim with an employment tribunal for holiday pay and redundancy pay due by her former employer, Cobsen-Davies Roofing (Surrey) Ltd. The tribunal rejected those claims on the grounds that, as a pre-requisite of the tribunal having jurisdiction, she was required by law to have lodged a written grievance about them with Cobsen-Davies Roofing (Surrey) Ltd - but she had not done so.
Mrs Luff appealed against the tribunal's refusal to entertain her claim. She has won.
