Tom Gibson appears in pro bono employment appeal
Outer Temple pupil Tom Gibson appeared recently in the Employment Appeal Tribunal in Duffy v George UKEAT 0517/11/CEA.
The appeal raised interesting questions on the way employment tribunals should handle potentially vulnerable witnesses in sexual harassment cases, and the extent to which an individual respondent, acting in person, should be allowed to cross-examine them.
Judgment was reserved and is expected shortly.
Tom appeared pro bono for the appellant via the Free Representation Unit (FRU), a charity that provides pro bono legal advice, case preparation and advocacy (see www.thefru.net).
