    McGibbon and another v OIL Ltd EAT/537/94 (0 other reports)

In McGibbon and another v OIL Ltd 19.12.94 (S) EAT 537/94, the EAT overrules an industrial tribunal's decision that two among 40 employees who were dismissed after they rejected new terms of employment were fairly dismissed for redundancy or, even if they were not redundant, for "some other substantial reason". The tribunal did not focus clearly on the extent to which all the dismissals were attributable to redundancy and how far they were due to some other reason.
