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

    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).
