    Mugford v Midland Bank plc [1997] IRLR 208 EAT (0 other reports)

In Mugford v Midland Bank plc [1997] IRLR 208, the EAT reviews the current situation regarding redundancy consultation in the context of unfair dismissal, observing that consultation with the trade union over selection criteria does not of itself obviate the need for individual consultation. But the EAT also holds that individual consultation with the employee before the final decision identifying him or her as redundant is not a prerequisite for a fair dismissal.
