EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL

Claim form

Whistleblowing

Case Petrica v Central London Community NHS Trust [2021] UKEAT 0059_20_1205

Facts P, a litigant in person, complained that his claim of whistleblowing had not been considered. The claim had not been stated in the list of agreed issues. P had applied to amend his claim to include whistleblowing. This was refused. P argued that the ET should have considered the contents of the claim form.

Decision 1. The appeal was dismissed.

2. It was not enough that Box 10 of the claim form had been locked. The aim of the Box was to enable the Tribunal Service to forward such claims to the relevant regulator.

3. The Box did not give rise to a whistleblowing claim on its own if no relevant particulars were included in the body of the claim. In this case, no such particulars had been included.
