Scope of victimisation protection - Aston v Martlet Group Ltd (formerly Jim Walker and Co Ltd (t/a I-Ride)) [EAT] 21.05.19 (Unreported)

A complaint of victimisation predicated on something said by a witness giving evidence at a preliminary hearing before an employment tribunal was outwith the scope of the Equality Act 2010 s.108(1)(a). The conduct complained of arose out of the former employment, but was not closely connected with it. Since the complaint was not within scope of Directive 2000/78, the principles from P v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis [2017] UKSC 65, [2018] 1 All E.R. 1011, [2017] 10 WLUK 581, [2018] C.L.Y. 839 did not require the application of judicial proceedings immunity to be overridden.
