    Parkinson v March Consulting Ltd [1997] IRLR 308 CA (0 other reports)

Where employment is terminated by notice, the employer's reason for dismissal has to be determined both by reference to its reason when dismissal occurs and by reference to its reason for giving the prior notice to terminate, holds a majority of the Court of Appeal in Parkinson v March Consulting Ltd [1997] IRLR 308. As a matter of evidence, this involves considering the employer's reasons throughout the notice period.
