Unfair Dismissal Law or Discrimination Law did not protect US Employee working 49% of his time in UK

In Fuller v United Healthcare Services Inc and another UKEAT/0464/13, the EAT considered whether a US citizen, who was employed by a US company but worked up to 49% of his time in the UK, could bring unfair dismissal and/or discrimination claims in an employment tribunal.

It was held by the Employment Appeals Tribunal that a US citizen employed by a US company, who had to spend around 49% of his working time in the UK, was not afforded the protection of the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Equality Act 2010 under UK law.
