Seahorse Maritime Ltd v Nautilus International

Employment tribunal – Jurisdiction. The claimant trade union's claim, under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, as regards the proposed redundancies of any of the defendant's employees assigned to any ships stationed outside Great Britain, had to be dismissed. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the defendant employer's appeal against the judgment of the Employment Appeal Tribunal that upheld, among other things, the employment tribunal's decision that the tribunal had jurisdiction to entertain the claim.
