Ottey v GM Packaging (UK) Ltd

Employment tribunal – Procedure. The employee recovered compensation in respect of sex discrimination and unfair dismissal claims. The employer sought a review of the award, with a request to stay the review pending the determination of an appeal in relation to another employee who had been involved in the same incident and dismissed. The employment judge refused the employer's application. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the employer's appeal, held that the judge had erroneously rejected the application at the threshold stage. Accordingly, the matter would be remitted for consideration.
