    Russell v London Borough of Haringey 12 June 2000 CA (0 other reports)

In Russell v London Borough of Haringey 12.6.00 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that there was no need for an employer to apply redundancy selection criteria to an employee whose post, which had been deleted in a reorganisation, was not the same as any other post. A requirement that the employee could be contractually obliged to provide cover for others, and the fact that he did other work to make up for the reduced value of his job, did not mean that he either was or became interchangeable with any other employee.
