On Thursday, the four claimants attended the Employment Tribunal on the Kingsway, with support from Jason Moyer-Lee, Jonathan Katona, and their legal team, to fight for consolidation of their four cases.
The Judge listened to both sides carefully, and decided that the cases would not be consolidated. She did however, decide to schedule the hearings consecutively, with gaps of 5 weeks between each case. She also ordered that the same Judge be scheduled to determine all four cases. After a plea from the Claimants’ counsel that the “hardest case be heard first”, she ordered that the CitySprint case be heard first, and it is due to start on 22nd of November 2016.
The legal team are liaising with the other three respondents, AddisonLee, eCourier and Excel, to schedule the remaining hearings during the first half of next year.
