    Cannon t/a Barkway Park Golf Club v Sadler EAT/385/01 (0 other reports)

In Cannon t/a Barkway Park Golf Club v Sadler 18.7.01 EAT 385/01, the EAT holds that an employee was not barred from pursuing her claim of unfair dismissal simply because she had not declared to the Inland Revenue the fact that she had received a taxable benefit in the form of a car. Her contract of employment was not tainted by illegality. The employee had not participated in any fraud or dishonesty, nor was there in existence any scheme intended to defraud the Inland Revenue. Moreover, the provision of the car was not central to her claim for unfair dismissal.
