Disclosure of Union Documents

The EAT has confirmed that communications between a claimant and her non-legally qualified trade union officials were not subject to legal advice privilege and in theory could be ordered to be disclosed. However, the EAT overturned an order that all correspondence be disclosed on the basis that disclosure should only be ordered if relevant and necessary for the proper disposal of the proceedings. That had not been established.
