Roeser v Commerzbank AG - EAT allows adjournment in whistleblowing case  EAT
Mr Roeser was a senior banker. He claimed he had been dismissed for whistleblowing (no statutory limit to compensation and automatically unfair dismissal if proven).
A tribunal refused to adjourn the hearing even though it would seriously prejudice a new business being set up by Mr Roeser. Mr Roeser decided to abandon his claim rather than risk prejudice to his new business.
The EAT overruled the Tribunal and granted the adjournment.
