    Shawkat v Nottingham City Hospital NHS Trust [2001] IRLR 555 CA (0 other reports)

The Court of Appeal holds in Shawkat v Nottingham City Hospital NHS Trust 21.6.01 that an employment tribunal was entitled to its conclusion that a reorganisation of the employee's duties to require him to carry out different work in part of his time, while it amounted to the imposition of unreasonable duties upon him which he had reasonably declined to carry out, did not mean that he was redundant. The requirement for the previous work remained undiminished and the tribunal was right to concentrate on that to the exclusion of other considerations.
