Makauskiene v Rentokil Initial Facilities Services (UK) Ltd

Employment tribunal – Procedure. An employee unsuccessfully applied to the employment tribunal for leave to amend her claim form to add: (i) detriments suffered by reason of protected disclosures to her existing unfair dismissal claim; and (ii) a claim for detrimental treatment by way of public interest disclosure. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT) allowed the employee's appeal in respect of the first proposed amendment on the basis that the tribunal ought to have given separate consideration to that claim, which had been closely linked to the existing unfair dismissal claim. However, the EAT took the view that the tribunal had not erred in law in refusing permission to amend to add the second claim.
