Travelodge Management Limited v Sylwia Wach

  • Case Reference
    [2015] ILCR Determination No. EDA 1511
  • Legal Body
    Labour Court
  • Type of Claim / Jurisdiction
    Tribunal Practice, Procedures and Jurisdictional Issues
Issues covered: Industrial Relations Acts, 1946 to 1990; Section 83, Employment Equality Acts, 1998 to 2011; Incorrect Respondent

This appeal concerns the Respondent’s identity. The Equality Tribunal had awarded compensation in favour of the complainant for discrimination and victimisation. However, on appeal the Respondent company proved that the Complainant was in fact employed by a different company which was not party to proceedings. As a result, the Labour Court overturned the Tribunal’s award, despite the evident bona fide mistake of the Complainant in taking the case against the incorrect Respondent.
