Cole v Hackney London Borough EAT/973/99

Reports relating to this case:

  • Reason for dismissal: Tribunal wrongly identifies reason for dismissal

    Date:
    15 December 2000

    An employment tribunal erred in law in finding that a dismissal had been for "some other substantial reason" rather than for "redundancy" in circumstances where the dismissal had been caused by the decision of the employer to restructure resulting in the " of the employee's post and the employee was left with no choice but to apply for a voluntary severance payment and leave employment, holds the EAT in Cole v The London Borough of Hackney.
