  • Legal Body
    Northern Ireland Industrial Tribunal (NIIT)
  • Type of Claim / Jurisdiction
    Dismissal, Tribunal Practice, Procedures and Jurisdictional Issues
Issues covered: Time Limits; Unfair Dismissal


The claimant was employed from March 2017 until he was dismissed on 25th June 2021.  The claimant did not lodge the ET1 until 10th May 2022.  It was initially in relation to unlawful deductions and unfair dismissal but by the time of his hearing the deductions matter had been resolved by a payment to the claimant.

The claimant stated that he did not know about the statutory time limit and that he had been off work on stress at the time of the dismissal and that had been continuing. There was no medical evidence to confirm the mental condition after the dismissal.  The issue for the Tribunal was whether to extend time to allow for the claim to proceed.
