Customer Question

In august i was interviewed for an internal job and my employees broke their own policies and law on disability. I put in a complaint and through repeaded chase up they have finally come back to me and i am not happy with the result the letter says i can contact more to discuse. The problem is its now just over three months from the interview and i believe that make the tribunal time over or does it go from when the employer gives you the final answer? As i assume the tribunal would want you to try and go throught the employees complaints procedure first? Which is correct from interview or final answer? if it is interview have i go the argument that they are continuing discriminating against me by the answer of the complaint?

Hello, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied earlier. There is actually some case law on this matter. In Virdi v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, the Employment Appeals Tribunal held that the time limit for a claim for race discrimination arising from a decision not to promote ran from the date of the decision itself, and not the date on which the decision was communicated to the employee. So if your initial grievance wa rejected it would be from the date the employer actually made that decision. If you were given the chance to appeal and that was rejected too, you could argue that the appeal itself was an ongoing case of discrimination and that the time should run from the date the decision is made in the appeal.
