Shawkat v Nottingham City Hospital NHS Trust [2001] IRLR 555 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Redundancy: Reorganisation of duties did not result in redundancy

    Date:
    15 September 2001

    The Court of Appeal holds in Shawkat v Nottingham City Hospital NHS Trust that an employment tribunal was entitled to its conclusion that a reorganisation of the employee's duties to require him to carry out different work in part of his time, while it amounted to the imposition of unreasonable duties upon him which he had reasonably declined to carry out, did not mean that he was redundant.
