Robinson and another v Hall Gregory Recruitment Ltd

Costs – Employment tribunal. In allowing the employee and her solicitor's appeals against orders for costs made in favour of the employer following the dismissal of the employee's claims, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that the employment tribunal had not considered whether the costs order against the employee had been appropriate or given the employee a chance to put forward evidence of her means. Further, the solicitor had not been invited to submit evidence of his advice to the employee, and the tribunal had made no findings of the effect of any negligence, such that the wasted costs order had been flawed.
