*Higgins v Home Office and another

Employment tribunal – Procedure. The employment tribunal judge had rejected the employee's claims for unfair dismissal and compensation under the tribunal's jurisdiction pursuant to r 12 of the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2013, SI 2013/1237. The Employment Appeal Tribunal allowed the employee's appeal against that decision, deciding that the tribunal had taken into account wholly mistaken factors. Accordingly, the matter was remitted to the tribunal to reconsider the question of rejection of the claim form by a different tribunal judge.
