This report relates to 1 case(s)
Welch v Taxi Owners Association (Grangemouth) Ltd EATS/0001/12 (1 other report)
In Welch v Taxi Owners Association (Grangemouth) Ltd EATS/0001/12, the EAT upheld a tribunal finding that an employee who resigned when her employer imposed shorter working hours was not unfairly dismissed. Her constructive dismissal was fair because the reduction was due to genuine business reasons. In these circumstances, there was no room for the employee to argue that the dismissal was unfair because she should have been made redundant.
