    Joseph Hoyle & Son Ltd v Ali and others 23 June 1999 CA (0 other reports)

In Joseph Hoyle & Son Ltd v Ali and others 23.6.99 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that an employment tribunal did not err in law in deciding that employees under notice of dismissal who failed to accept their employer's offer of re-engagement on new terms by the deadline that it had imposed were unfairly dismissed. That decision was substantially based on the tribunal's finding of fact that the processes of negotiation and consultation carried out by the employer beforehand were not reasonable, making the enforcement of the dismissal notices unreasonable.
