Judgment in four cases in the Employment Appeal Tribunal was handed down between 5 August 2013 and 11 August 2013, including the following:

  1. Ross v Eddie Stobart Limited [2013] UKEAT 0068_13_0808 (automatic unfair dismissal, whistleblowing, reason for dismissal) – The Claimant appealed against the Employment Tribunal’s conclusion that his dismissal was for conduct (and not because he had blown the whistle) on the basis that the decision was perverse and that the Employment Tribunal had failed to apply the burden of proof test relating to the reason for his dismissal properly. The Employment Appeal Tribunal dismissed the appeal on the basis that the decision was not perverse and that the Employment Tribunal had not applied the wrong test.
  2. Visteon Engineering Services Ltd v Oliphant & Ors [2013] UKEAT 0010_13_0708 (redundancy, redundancy pay, contract, implied terms) – Visteon appealed against the Employment Tribunal’s decision that the terms of a collective agreement applied indefinitely and not just for a six year period. The Employment Appeal Tribunal dismissed the appeal for the reason that there was no basis for applying a limitation of six years
  3. Andrew v Cledor Ltd & Anor [2013] UKEAT 0111_13_0608 (discrimination, ET1, amendment of claim) – The Employment Tribunal refused the Claimant permission to amend her ET1 to include more than one claim for discrimination. The Claimant appealed. The Employment Appeal Tribunal found that there was in fact one claim for discrimination/harassment contained in the ET1 and that the Employment Judge’s decision to refuse leave to amend for any claim but that was to be upheld.
  4. R & M Gaskarth v Mooney & Anor [2013] UKEAT 0196_12_0508 (unfair dismissal, compensation, causation) – the Respondent appealed against the Employment Tribunal’s findings relating to compensation in the Claimants’ unfair dismissal case on the basis that the wife’s depression had not been caused by the unfair dismissal and the Claimants had been awarded sums by the way of double recovery. The Employment Appeal Tribunal rejected the appeal.

I was very grateful for Redmans to treat my case with respect and discretion. At the time, I was very new to London and it was meaningful to have someone on my side and win the case for me. Without any doubt, I would definitely recommend Redmans Solicitors to anyone who is in need of it.

Excellent service. It was a pleasure to work with Chris H, who is brilliant at what he does and very efficient. Their Senior Associate Rana T. is also very knowledgeable and resolves any queries speedily and efficiently. My issue could unfortunately not be resolved, but that was due to my employer and not the firm. Redmans however did all they could. I would definitely recommend them.

Amazing, quick friendly service from Chris from the start and Caroline. They made me feel at ease during a difficult time, they understood and advised accordingly and I am really happy with the outcome of my case. Will always advise anyone who needs legal advice to contact Redmans, I’m so glad that I did and can confidently say I don’t think any other firm could have handled my case any better. Well done guys, wish you all the best and please keep doing what your doing, simply the best!

I had a very good experience working with Chris Hadrill during a difficult and emotional time. This held true from the moment I spoke to him on the phone, to the end of the process. Overall, he was attentive, professional and highly supportive. He provided sound advice and clarity. It was the reviews that led me to Redmans! I was very happy to know they were all true. I highly recommend working with Redmans Solicitors. Thank-you to the entire team!

Very prompt response and I could not fault the service. My solicitor listened carefully to the details of my case and I felt very confident in the advice I was offered. All emails and work done on my behalf with my former employer was of the highest standard and Redmans helped take a lot of the stress out of the situation for me.
