    Salvesen Logistics Ltd v Tate EAT/689/98 (0 other reports)

An employment tribunal was entitled to rule that the loss attributable to an employee's unfair dismissal did not cease on the date he subsequently started new employment, holds the EAT in Salvesen Logistics Ltd v Tate 22.12.98 EAT 689/98. The EAT affirms that there is no rule that in every case the "cut-off" date for the purposes of assessing loss is the date the employee started the intervening "permanent" employment with equivalent pay - it is for the tribunal to take account of all the relevant factors and reach a decision that is fair and equitable.
