CEX Ltd v Lewis EAT/0013/07
Reports relating to this case:
- 10 December 2007
In CEX Ltd v Lewis EAT/0013/07, the EAT held that evidence that a dismissed employee might not have been retained even if fair procedures had been followed should not have been ignored by a tribunal when it decided to make no Polkey reduction to the compensation awarded. The tribunal was, however, entitled to award just the minimum 10% uplift to compensation for the automatically unfair dismissal on the basis that the employer was ignorant of the statutory dismissal procedures that it should have followed.
- 30 August 2007
In Cex Ltd v Lewis EAT/0013/07, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has considered the uplift in the compensation that employment tribunals can award where an employer had failed to follow the statutory disciplinary and dismissal procedure.
