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.

Chris @ Redmans assisted me with an employment issue. Firstly, he was very proactive in coming back to my initial enquiry and then helped to clearly lay out the options that I had in relation to my position. He then assisted with the preparation of my case, which led to a very satisfactory outcome. I would highly recommend the quality of service & professionalism offered by Redmans Solicitors.

Chris was very effective and decisive in dealing with my matter. I felt guided, and the pressure to make decisions was taken off my shoulders; he knew what needed to be done and I was happy to follow his advice. The result of the legal dispute was a great success for me. He is also kind and personable. The only thing that I would say it could be improved, is the accuracy of cost estimation at the beginning: not many activites, that could not have been forseen had to take place, but costs went up more than double in the end. Overall very good and trustworthy. I would definately recommend and use Redmans services again.
