Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council v Prest  ICR 85 EAT (0 other reports)
In Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council v Prest  ICR 85 EAT, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that, while the absence of a written statement under the Employment Protection (Consolidation) Act 1978, section 102 did not of itself prevent a compensatory payment from being a redundancy payment, in this case it was not the intention of either the council or the employee that a compensatory payment for a reduction in hours was to be treated as or set against the council's statutory liability to make a redundancy payment.
Mrs Prest was a school caretaker.
