    Date:
    20 March 2013

    In Turner v East Midlands Trains Ltd [2013] IRLR 107 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the "range of reasonable responses" test, the long-standing approach to the assessment of the fairness of a dismissal, does not require adjustment even where art.8 of the European Convention on Human Rights is engaged. The existing approach is sufficiently nuanced and flexible to be compatible.

  • Unfair dismissal test complies with European Convention on Human Rights

    Date:
    20 November 2012

    The Court of Appeal has held that the "band of reasonable responses" test for determining unfair dismissal claims does not need to be modified where an employee's rights under art.8 of the European Convention on Human Rights are engaged as a result of his or her dismissal.
