Employment analysis: The provisions in section 207B of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA 1996), and elsewhere, which provide for time limits to be extended on account of early conciliation are to be applied sequentially. They are not alternatives, ie sub-section 207B(3) applies in every case and, where it applies, sub-section 207B(4) operates to extend the time limit as first modified by sub-section 207B(3), according to the EAT. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
