Having been dismissed for gross misconduct on 13th November my husband appealed and the appeal hearing took place on 20th December. He is still awaiting the outcome of the appeal. His (ex)employers conduct code states that the decision should be in 5 days – it is now over 5 weeks. We have written but not recieved a response. We have put a claim in to the ET as the 3 months will be up next week and this has been accepted. Is there a maximum time in law? I have looked at the ACAS guidance but this dosn’t really help.
