Irrelevance can be a key factor

Mears v Lloyd Green & Co, EAT, 17 November 2003

Mears, a legal secretary, worked for Lloyd Green & Co solicitors. She brought tribunal complaints of unfair and wrongful dismissal, both of which were conceded prior to hearing. In the intervening period, Mears joined a number of employment agencies and was entirely candid, stating that she had a case pending against her former employers. She also declined to seek a reference from Lloyd Green & Co.
