Ballinrobe Waste Disposal Limited - respondent
UNFAIR DISMISSALS ACTS, 1977 TO 2007
I certify that the Tribunal
(Division of Tribunal)
Chairman: Dr. A. Courell B.L.
Members: Mr. D. Morrison
Mr T. Gill
heard this claim at Castlebar on 12th May 2014
Claimant(s) : Mr Brian Jennings BL instructed by McDarby & Co., Solicitors, Glebe
Street, Ballinrobe, Co Mayo
Respondent(s) : Peninsula Business Services (Ireland) Limited,
Unit 3, Ground Floor, Block S, East Point Business
Park, Dublin 3
The claimant’s employment with the respondent company commenced on 7 March 2007. He remained in employment until the termination of his employment on 11 February 2014 when he was issued with his P45. He had been absent from his employment from 7 August 2012 on certified sick leave and submitted regular medical certificates for this absence. He submitted his claim form for Unfair Dismissal to the Tribunal on 25 October 2012. This date predates the date of dismissal.
The Tribunal finds that the date of dismissal was 11 February 2014 (the date the P45 issued). Accordingly, in those circumstances, as the claim form submitted to the Tribunal secretariat predated the date of dismissal the Tribunal declines jurisdiction to hear this case.
