Rana v Ealing London Borough and another; Bonnie v Department for Work and Pensions

Time – Appeal. Where an employment tribunal failed to send a judgment to the correct party or address, the party affected should not be put in a worse position than if it had done its job properly. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that, since they would have had 42 days from the date of sending to file a notice of appeal, it should follow, subject to specified points, that the discretion to extend time should be exercised so as to allow them the same period from the date that they were eventually sent a copy of the judgment.
