What was the decision in First-tier Tribunal case EA/2016/0054?
I’ll declare at the start I was the Appellant in this First-tier Tribunal case.
As the costs issue has yet to be decided (that is it is still sub judice), unfortunately I’m turning off comments on this blog post to prevent any comments about an issue that is still sub judice.
This decision was received on Friday 23rd September 2016 and is based on the hearing that happened on Wednesday morning (21st September 2016).
Added 28/9/2016 The original 2nd Respondent’s name read incorrectly Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (not Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority). The GRC have been in touch with an amended version and it is the corrected version that is below rather than the original.
