    Martin v Yeomen Aggregates Ltd [1983] IRLR 49 EAT (0 other reports)

Whether or not words of dismissal uttered in the heat of the moment can be retracted quickly has in the past been left undecided by the Court of Appeal and the EAT. In Martin v Yeomen Aggregates Ltd 4.11.82 EAT 355/82 the EAT, in a rather unsatisfactory judgment, appears to hold that immediate retraction of a summary dismissal is possible in law.
