Reports relating to this case:

  • Redundancy: Dismissal was by reason of redundancy where headcount was not reduced

    Date:
    20 November 2012

    In Packman t/a Packman Lucas Associates v Fauchon [2012] IRLR 721 EAT, the EAT held that a dismissal will be by reason of redundancy where it is caused by an employer's need for employees to do less work of a particular kind, even if there is no change in the number of employees required.

  • Reduction in headcount not necessary for redundancy

    Date:
    5 July 2012

    The Employment Appeal Tribunal has affirmed the employment tribunal's decision that an employee, who was dismissed because of the employer's downturn in work and consequent reduction in the hours to be worked, was dismissed by reason of redundancy, even though there was no reduction in the employees required.
