British Council v Jeffery; Green v SIG Trading Ltd

Employment tribunal – Jurisdiction. The decision on the sufficient connection question was an evaluative judgment to be made on the underlying facts, which was a question of law, but an appellate tribunal would not usually interfere with a first instance evaluative judgment of the kind. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeals, further held that the existence of an English choice of law clause could be considered on the sufficient connection issue.
