Northamptonshire CC v Entwhistle [2010] I.R.L.R. 740.

DATE: 25 May 2010

Employment Appeal Tribunal. Where the claimant’s employer had provided mistaken advice as to the time limit for bringing an unfair dismissal claim before the claimant consulted a solicitor about bringing such a claim, a finding that the solicitor had been negligent in failing to spot the mistake decisively determined that it had been reasonably practicable for the claimant to present his claim in time for the purposes of the

Employment Rights Act 1996 s.111(2)(b).
