    Ealing London Borough v Garry EAT/799/99 (0 other reports)

In London Borough of Ealing v Garry 9.10.00 EAT 799/99, the EAT holds that an employment tribunal either failed to identify anything that could truly be called a detriment to an employee who had unknowingly been the subject of a continuing investigation into suspected fraud or, if it had intended to say that her lack of awareness was a detriment, had reached a conclusion that was perverse. There was no evidence before the tribunal from which it could have concluded that the employee's lack of awareness had actually caused her some disadvantage.
