Redundancy: Re-employment after redundancy may preclude unfair dismissal claim

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In EBAC Ltd v Wymer [1995] ICR 466, the EAT holds that an employee's dismissal because of redundancy may "vanish" if he or she is re-employed by his or her employer shortly afterwards. The statutory provisions which cause the dismissal to "vanish" apply wherever the substantive reason for the dismissal is redundancy, and even if the employee is claiming unfair dismissal rather than a redundancy payment.
