    Bray v Calor Gas Ltd [2005] All ER (D) 54 (Sep) EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

In Calor Gas Ltd v Bray 12.09.05 UKEAT/0633/04/DZM, the EAT holds:

  • The employment tribunal was incorrect to hold that, in the case of a woman who was on maternity leave at the time she was made redundant, redundancy consultation was automatically extended to the end of her maternity leave.
  • It is open for an employer to dismiss on the grounds of redundancy during the maternity leave period, subject to reg.
