    Highland Fish Farmers v Thorburn and another EAT/1094/94 (0 other reports)

An industrial tribunal's decision that an employer acted unreasonably in treating two fish-farming sites separately for the purposes of redundancy selection is upheld by the EAT in Highland Fish Farmers v Thorburn and another. The tribunal had been entitled to give weight to the fact that the sites, which were in close geographical proximity, provided mutual support and should have been treated as one pool for selection.
