Tricky Time Limits in the Employment Tribunal


In the case of Miah v Axis Security Services Ltd, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that time limits are not automatically extended when the limitation period expires on a non-working day.

The Claimant, Mr Miah, brought a claim of unfair dismissal against his former employer. His claim was received by the Employment Tribunal on Monday 30th January 2017. However, the normal three month time limit expired on Sunday 29th January 2017.
