University of Glasgow v Donaldson and another EAT/951/94

Reports relating to this case:

  • Redundancy: Importance of individual consultation

    Date:
    1 June 1995

    In a number of recent cases, the EAT has re-emphasised the critical importance of consulting with employees on an individual basis before dismissing for redundancy. In particular, the obligation to consult applies notwithstanding that an employee is employed under a fixed-term contract which is coming to an end.
