    In Williams v North Tyneside Council EAT/0415/05 the Employment Appeal Tribunal holds that where a claimant unreasonably failed to mitigate her loss following unfair dismissal by embarking on a university course, the tribunal should have considered what would have happened had she acted reasonably and calculated losses on that basis.
