Ruhaza v Alexander Hancock Recruitment Ltd - Out of time discrimination claims  EAT
Tribunal's conclusion that claim was presented out of time meant it had no jurisdiction to hear it - and claimant refused to allow it to consider just and equitable extension, which would have been the only possible way around the problem.
In February 2007 Francophone Burundi national Mr Ruhaza applied for a post as a French speaking bi-lingual administrator advertised by Alexander Hancock Recruitment (AHR). It becamse clear to Mr Ruhaza that AHR were looking for someone in the Manchester area, and he told them - when asked - that he intended to relocate. He was invited to arrange an interview but he never did, and so was never registered by AHR. Then in November 2007 he saw a simliar advert by AHR which said that they would "prefer a British national".
