Rank Nemo (DMS) Ltd and Others v Coutinho

Court of Appeal

“An employment tribunal had no jurisdiction to enforce a discrimination compensation award it made to an employee; however, if the employee had entered a county court judgment on the award and the employer still failed to pay the money, then the employment tribunal could link the failure to post-employment discrimination and victimisation in order to assume jurisdiction to enforce the judgment.”

Bone v Newham London Borough Council – WLR Daily

Bone v Newham London Borough Council [2008] EWCA Civ 435; [2008] WLR (D) 134

Where an employment tribunal had held that a complaint of direct sex discrimination and victimisation or constructive dismissal had not been proved, it was not open to the tribunal subsequently to amend its decision to find that her dismissal had been an act of direct sex discrimination and victimisation. Where the Employment Appeal Tribunal concluded that the tribunal had erred in law in so amending its decision, it was inappropriate for the EAT simply to allow the appeal and leave the original and unamended decision to stand.”
