CEX Ltd v Lewis EAT/0013/07

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal compensation: Percentage uplifts and Polkey reductions

    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.
