Bowyer v Siemens Communications Ltd EAT/0021/05

Reports relating to this case:

  • Compensation: 'Redundancy' payment not set off

    Date:
    30 September 2005

    In Bowyer v Siemens Communications Ltd, the EAT holds that, in order for s.122(4) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 - the offsetting of the basic award by the amount of any payment made by the employer to the employee on the ground that the dismissal was by reason of redundancy - to come into play, a tribunal must find that an employee's dismissal is actually on the ground of redundancy.
