Banerjee v City & East London Area Health Authority [1979] IRLR 147 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal: When re-organisation is a substantial reason for dismissal

    Date:
    18 July 1979

    The Court of Appeal held, in Hollister v National Farmers' Union, that Mr Hollister's dismissal for refusing to accept the terms of a re-organisation amounted to some other substantial reason for dismissal. And in Banerjee v City & East London AHA, the EAT overturned an Industrial Tribunal's decision that Mr Banerjee's dismissal from his post of part-time consultant surgeon following a decision to replace part-timers with full-timers was for some other substantial reason.
