Dropbox is not acceptable to lodge appeals

The Claimant’s claims of race discrimination, victimisation, and whistleblowing, amongst others, were dismissed at a Preliminary Hearing, against which decision the Claimant appealed. The Claimant’s representative attempted to do so via email sent the day before the deadline; and then sent a further email timed at 4 minutes past the 4pm deadline for receipt of the appeal which contained a link to the ET1 and ET3 in the Dropbox. There are more facts to this case than meet the eye but the moral of the tale is – do not use Dropboxes for lodging appeals!
