    15 February 2000

    An employment tribunal fell into error by patently failing to consider whether or not the reason or principal reason for the dismissal of employees by the administrator of an insolvent company was an economic reason unrelated to the transfer of the company's undertaking, concludes the EAT in Honeycombe 78 Ltd v (1) Cummins and others (2) Secretary of State for Trade and Industry.
