Statutory Grievances - Admissibility of Claims

The EAT has come up with another clever way of circumventing s31 of the Employment Act 2002 in Mackay v Blakes Newsagents (HHJ Serota QC).

It held that where an ET1 is presented prematurely (because 28 days from the grievance letter had not elapsed), an employment tribunal has jurisdiction to permit the ET1 to be amended after the 28 days has elapsed, provided it contains one or more causes of action that are not caught by s32(2).
