Unfair dismissal: Uplift in compensation under Acas code not applicable in "some other substantial reason" case

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Phoenix House Ltd v Stockman and another [2016] IRLR 848 EAT, the EAT held that, while the "Acas code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures" did have some application to elements of a "some other substantial reason" dismissal, it was not appropriate to apply the uplift in compensation for unfair dismissal in such a case.
