    King and others v Eaton Ltd [1996] IRLR 199 CS (0 other reports)

In King and others v Eaton Ltd [1996] IRLR 199, the Court of Session restores an industrial tribunal's decision that an employer unfairly dismissed four employees because it failed to show that its method of selecting them for redundancy was fair or applied reasonably. Because there was no consultation worthy of the name with any of the employees, it became all the more important that there should have been fair and proper consultation with their representatives.
