Wraith v Driving Standards Agency

Employment tribunal – Procedure. The employment tribunal (the tribunal) dismissed the employee's claims of disability discrimination and protected disclosure detrimental treatment on the basis that the employee had not complied with the requirements of the statutory grievance procedure in respect of both claims. On appeal, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) upheld the employee's appeal to the limited extent that the tribunal ought to have considered itself bound by the previous pre-hearing review ruling that the pre-termination disability complaints had been sufficiently 'grieved'. However, the tribunal had been entitled to conclude that those complaints had been time-barred and failed on that separate jurisdictional ground. Since all the other grounds of appeal had failed, the EAT dismissed the appeal.
