    In Catherall v Michelin Tyre plc, the EAT holds that where a disabled employee is given the option of redundancy or retirement and opts for the latter, it is necessary for a tribunal to consider why the employee is accepting that option. If the option being put to the employee is not whether he or she wants to terminate his or her employment, but simply how it will be terminated, this in itself could amount to a dismissal.
