Sivagnansundaram v Whipps Cross University Hospital NHS Trust - Adequacy of reasons for a tribunal's decision [2011] EAT

The Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2004 Rule 30(6) requires only the reasons for relevant matters to be included in a Tribunal's judgment; irrelevant points need not be dealt with.

Mrs Sivagnanasundaram ("Mrs Siva") worked as an NHS  radiographer from about 1985, initially for Waltham Forest Health Authority and subsequently for Whipps Cross University Hospital NHS Trust. In 1995, she became the sole radiographer at the Silverthorn Centre in Chingford.

In 2004, following a job evaluation, she was placed in "Band 6". Mrs Siva objected to this on the basis that she was running an x-ray unit on her own and other staff in that position were in Band 7. A review panel in August 2006 found that Mrs Siva's banding was correct. This was the beginning of a long-running dispute between Mrs Siva and the Trust.
