Duty on employment tribunals to publish judgments and written reasons in the register


Re: Ameyaw v Pricewaterhousecoopers Services Ltd UKEAT/0244/18/LA

The EAT dismissed an appeal against a decision refusing applications to: remove a judgment from the public register, or to make a permanent Anonymity Order. An employment tribunal had no power to exclude or remove a judgment from the public register under the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2013, Sch 1, rule 50. The tribunal had properly exercised its discretion in refusing to make an Anonymity Order. ECHR, art 8 was not engaged – the matters to which the appellant objected had been the subject of discussion at a public trial of a strike out application.

Claire Darwin was involved in this case.
