Tracey v Crosville Wales Ltd [1997] IRLR 691 HL

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal remedies: Participation in industrial action is not in itself contributory fault

    Date:
    15 November 1997

    When an industrial tribunal has jurisdiction to hear unfair dismissal complaints by employees who have been dismissed for taking part in a strike or other industrial action, because some but not all have been offered re-engagement, participation in the strike or other industrial action cannot in itself amount to contributory fault, holds the House of Lords in Tracy and others v Crosville Wales Ltd (No.2).
