Collective redundancies: Termination by employee after significant changes to essential terms is "redundancy"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Pujante Rivera v Gestora Clubs Dir, SL and another [2016] IRLR 51 ECJ, the ECJ held that, where an employee resigns in response to the employer making unilateral changes to essential terms in the employment contract for reasons not related to the employee concerned, this will amount to a "redundancy" within the meaning of art.1(1)(a)(i) of the Collective Redundancies Directive (98/59/EC).
