Disgraceful. I bought a case against a company called Zaan Services T/A Domino's Pizza in 2008. The case was dealt with by a female judge called Jane Liddington. We had a pre-hearing review which was chaired by the regioonal judge where I asked for an extension of time so I could get legal representation. The judge asked me to ask the employment tribunal on the day which I did but was rejected by this judge (Jane Liddington) in breach of Article 6 Right to a Fair Hearing Human Rights Act 1998.I ended up losing the case which left me bitter. But this particular employment judge was very friendly to the respondent employer and accepted everything they said orally as credible when all the evidence pointed in favour of me. She directed the two lay members to also rule against me by using her influence. She then produced a judgment whereby I was accused of fabricating everything apart from the fact that they failed to issue me with written particulars. However, I got nothing as that claim alone is not freestanding and you would have to win on one of the other grounds. I had pictures and pictures do not lie. She bypassed the authorities of the Employment Appeal Tribunal which is not allowed. At the end of the hearing the respondent's legal advisor looked worried and she simply said to him don't worry it won't make any difference, referring to my submissions. I appealed to the employment appeal tribunal and they all three members ganged up against me by denying that she was biased in favour of the respondent. The appeal was ultimately unsuccessful and the reason being because I represented myself and not because my claim was not genuine but when you have respondent loving judges chairing hearing they need to ensure that so far as it it possible that both sides are treated equally and if anything they should lean in favour of the claimant and not the multinationals. This judge is dodgy to the extreme and constantly presided over cases which were eventually overturned on appeal. I am not sure if she is still an employment tribunal judge but I wish I could have challenged her and those two idiot lay members who should have known better. This experience really left a bad taste in my mouth with me vowing never ever to step foot in an employment tribunal ever again. Instead I will go to the small claims court. If I ever see her ugly face again I will tell her what I think of her.
