    Chronos Richardson Ltd v Watson [2001] All ER (D) 319 (Mar)  EAT (0 other reports)

In Chronos Richardson Ltd v Watson 27.3.01 EAT 1340/99, the EAT holds that the majority of an employment tribunal erred in law by substituting its own view for that of the reasonable employer, when it failed to apply the "band of reasonable responses" test and, instead, undertook an over-detailed analysis of a selection system used by an employer in making redundancies, including picking away at individual aspects of it and criticising individual markings awarded.
