Costs Mental Health Ruling

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that a Tribunal was wrong to make a £100,000 costs order against a former employee with mental health problems without giving consideration to his future potential earnings.

The EAT also held that they should inform the Tribunal if they intended to serve a statutory demand against the employee which would have the effect of bankrupting him.
