Will Young for the successful appellant in Read v Ryder

The judgment has now been handed down in the EAT in the case of Read v Ryder.

Will Young appeared for the successful appellant in the case, which gave guidance in relation to the question of precisely when the Employment Tribunal has jurisdiction to hear an employer’s counter-claim.

The EAT in Read v Ryder accepted Will’s argument that for the Tribunal to have jurisdiction, the claimant must have unambiguously (i.e. expressly) have brought a claim ‘by virtue of’ the Employment Tribunals (Extension of Jurisdiction) Order 1994, or to have brought a claim that could only have been brought by virtue of the Order.

Notwithstanding the relatively small sum at stake in the case itself, the decision may be of wider interest, particularly to claimant litigants in person in the Tribunal.
