Radakovits v Abbey National Plc - Reasonable belief that dismissal procedure is being followed and automatic extensions of time  EAT
Mr Radakovits was one of 200 employees dismissed by Abbey. With his manager's assistance (she was also being dismissed) he took extensive legal advice - but she gave a wrong date and, as a result, his advisers miscalculated his last day of employment. Mr Radakovits made a "tactical decision" to present his employment tribunal claim on the very last day of the three month time limit period - actually 26th January 2008 - but due to the miscalculation he was one day late when he presented his complaint on 27th. The employment tribunal rejected his claim, and he appealed.
