RE ROLFE v POA CERTIFICATION OFFICERS DECISION APPEAL TO THE EMPLOYMENT APPEAL TRIBUNAL

 Further to POA Circular 28/18 dated 20th March 2018, there was a discussion at the NEC meeting on 28th March 2018 about the POA’s options in relation to this decision.

The NEC considered Counsel’s written advice about the Certification Officer’s decision and questioned Thompsons Solicitors about the options for the POA including an appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

Given Counsel’s advice that an appeal had good prospects of success and the desire of the NEC that there be certainty around the POA’s rules, the NEC has decided to instruct Thompsons to lodge an appeal by the end of April.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
