Ralph and others v Ministry of Justice

Practice and procedure – Appellate jurisdiction. Fee-paid immigration judges complained to the employment tribunal that they were treated less favourably than salaried judges. The claims of the appellants were stayed.The tribunal ruled that the lead claimant had not established that there was less favourable treatment (the decision). The lead claimant did not appeal. The appellants sought to appeal the decision. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the appeal, held that it had jurisdiction under s 21 of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996 to hear the appeal and that the tribunal had erred in failing to give adequate reasons for finding that the claim of less favourable treatment had not been established.
