EF and another v AB and others

Employment tribunal – Procedure. The appellants appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) against the refusal by the employment tribunal to include them within the terms of a permanent Restricted Reporting Order (RRO) made in relation to and following the tribunal's determination of claims made by the first respondent. The EAT decided that the tribunal had misdirected itself in law, taken into account irrelevant factors and had omitted relevant factors in refusing the appellants' applications for an extended RRO. Consequently, in exercise of powers under s 35(1)(a) of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996, an extended RRO would be made in the terms of the third confidential Annex to the skeleton argument on behalf of the appellants for the appeal before the EAT.
