Remploy v Brain - Extension of time allowed for filing an unfair dismissal claim  EAT
An employment judge allowed a claim to proceed out of time mainly by reason of the employee had been (wrongly) advised that she need not file her claim while an internal appeal was still continuing. The EAT has dismissed the employer's appeal.
Mrs Brain was a regional operations manager employed by Remploy when she was dismissed on 10th November 2009 for gross misconduct. An internal appeal process was still under way when she eventually lodged an unfair dismissal claim with an employment tribunal in April 2010.
