    Richardson and another v Applied Imaging International Ltd EAT/311/93 (0 other reports)

An employee who agreed to relocate but later decided not to move was not dismissed by reason of redundancy, but rather because of his intention not to comply with the relocation clause in his contract, holds the EAT in Richardson and another v Applied Imaging International Ltd. The variation of his contract of employment to incorporate the relocation clause when the employer's move was contemplated had not been an attempt by the employer to exclude or limit statutory provisions relating to redundancy.
