  • Redundancy: Tribunal decision flawed for failure to apply "band of reasonable responses" test

    Date:
    1 October 2001

    In Chronos Richardson Ltd v Watson, the EAT holds that the majority of an employment tribunal erred in law by substituting its own view for that of the reasonable employer, when it failed to apply the "band of reasonable responses" test and, instead, undertook an over-detailed analysis of a selection system used by an employer in making redundancies, including picking away at individual aspects of it and criticising individual markings awarded.
