Johnson v Rollerworld EAT/0237/10
Reports relating to this case:
Unfair dismissal: Correct approach to limitation of compensatory award on grounds that employment would have terminated in any event
- 15 June 2011
In Johnson v Rollerworld EAT/0237/10, the EAT held that compelling evidence is needed to justify reducing compensation for unfair dismissal on the grounds that the employment would have ended at some stage in the future. Where the tribunal finds that the employment would have come to an end through dismissal, compensation can be reduced to reflect that fact only if the dismissal would have been fair.

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has confirmed that, while a tribunal may take into account the chances of an employee being dismissed in any event when limiting the employee's compensation for unfair dismissal, it must be contemplating a fair dismissal.
