Labour & European Law Review
22 February 2017
Following an announcement by the Ministry of Justice in June last year, employment tribunal decisions for cases heard in England, Wales and Scotland are now publicly available online.
When considering an order for re-engagement, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held in United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust v Farren, that tribunals have to ask whether it was practicable to order this particular employer to re-engage this particular claimant, as opposed to applying their own test.
If a tribunal thinks a claim has little chance of success, it can require the claimant to pay a deposit order.
