Restriction of redundancy pool to one employee must fall within "range of reasonable responses"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

unfair dismissal | redundancy selection | selection pool

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that, where the employer put an employee into a redundancy "pool of one" and did not consider the possibility of putting a wider pool of employees at risk of redundancy, the employment tribunal did not properly consider whether or not restricting the pool to one fell within the "range of reasonable responses".
