Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal remedies: No Polkey reduction where lack of consultation went "to the heart" of unfairness

    Date:
    1 January 1999

    An employer found to have dismissed employees for redundancy unfairly because of a lack of consultation was not entitled to adduce further evidence at the remedies hearing as to the employees' individual redundancy assessments with a view to showing that, even if there had been consultation, the employees would still have been dismissed, holds the Court of Session in King and others v Eaton Ltd (No.2).
