Solus (London) Ltd v Matthews - Extension of time  EAT
Mr Matthews presented as unfair dismissal claim online just within the time limit – but to the wrong Tribunal. He presented it to the Northern Ireland Tribunal. After several weeks delay the Northern Ireland Tribunal rejected his claim. He then applied promptly to the Tribunal in England and Wales as he should have done in the first place. However by then the claim was out of time.
In those circumstances an employment judge allowed an extension of time. Solus (London) Ltd appealed against this decision.
