Case of the Month
6/2018
DHL Supply Chain v Fazackerley
The EAT in DHL Supply Chain v Fazackerley held it was not reasonably practicable for an employee to present a claim for unfair dismissal in time where ACAS caused the delay. In this case suggesting that the employee could wait for an internal appeal before making a claim (they cannot if that takes them over the 3 months period post dismissal). But allowing an unfair dismissal claim out of time is unusual. The time limits in this regard are strict and employees beware. Having said that, employers cannot assume there will be no claim after 3 months have elapsed as it takes time for the ET to process any claim made in time.
