JUDGMENT
The judgment of the Tribunal is that:

The claimant's claims of unfair dismissal and unauthorised deduction of wages are
struck out because they were not presented within the period of three months
from the effective date of termination, or the date upon which payment of the
wages claimed were due and it was reasonably practicable for the claims to have
been submitted in time. The substantive hearing listed for 8 July 2019 is vacated.

REASONS
Background

1. The claimant was employed as a Postman/Sorting Officer by the respondent
from 23 September 1991 until he was summarily dismissed on 15 November
2018.

2. On 1 March 2019, the claimant submitted claims of unfair dismissal and
unauthorised deduction of wages. The respondent submitted its response on 10
April 2019. With the response, the respondent applied for a preliminary hearing
to determine if the claimant’s claims had been submitted in time.

3. The issue that the respondent raised was that the ACAS certificate that the
claimant relied upon against the respondent was applied for and granted on 21
February 2019. At paragraph 15 of his ET1, the claimant had stated that his
application was out of time because he had believed he had been employed by
The Post Office and had applied for early conciliation against that employer on 5
February 2019. ACAS had contacted the claimant’s representative and indicated
that The Post Office had no record of the claimant as an employee. He said that
“it became clear that the claimant [was]… employed by Royal Mail.” This was
after primary limitation had expired, so early conciliation was starte
d against
Royal Mail Group Limited immediately and these proceedings were presented
subsequently. The claimant had been waiting for the outcome of his appeal
against dismissal until 5 February.

Maybe he said to the solicitor he worked for the post office or maybe he said royal mail it could be interpreted wrong
