    Selfridges Ltd v Malik [1997] IRLR 577 EAT (0 other reports)

In Selfridges Ltd v Malik [1997] IRLR 577, the EAT sets out the correct method of calculating compensation for unfair dismissal in the case of an employer's non-compliance with a reinstatement or re-engagement order. The EAT holds that the amount specified in the order to recompense the employee for loss of benefits between the date of dismissal and the date for re-employment is not a "free-standing" head recoverable in addition to the compensatory, basic and additional awards.
