Redundancy: An employer that chose to enforce contractual mobility clauses to avoid redundancy was not obliged to follow its redundancy procedure

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Home Office v Evans and Laidlaw [2007] EWCA Civ 1089, the Court of Appeal held that, where an employer closing down a particular workplace did not envisage any redundancy dismissals because it intended to transfer staff to other workplaces - invoking, where applicable, wide contractual mobility clauses - it was free to choose this method and was not obliged to follow its redundancy procedures.
