    Secretary of State for Employment v Cooper [1987] ICR 766 EAT (0 other reports)

In Secretary of State for Employment v Cooper [1987] ICR 766 EAT, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that it was appropriate for the Secretary of State for Employment to reduce the amount of money awarded in lieu of notice in an insolvency case by an amount equivalent to the basic rate of tax.

When their employer became insolvent, Mr Cooper and Mr Vinning were summarily dismissed with no payment in lieu of the notice to which they were otherwise entitled.
