Employment – Procedure. The employment tribunal had recused itself after it had received information from a third party that was prejudicial principally to one party in the case. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT), in dismissing the employees appeal against the tribunal's decision to recuse itself, held that the tribunal's decision had been right. Of central importance was having a fair trial before a tribunal that both was and appeared to be impartial. The EAT gave guidance as to the approach tribunals should take if approached by a third party about the merits of a case.
