    Hillman v London General Transport Services Ltd EAT/498/97 (0 other reports)

There is no scope for including in the statutory reasonableness test a requirement that account must be taken of provisions of national or European Community law affording only interpretative guidance, holds the EAT in Hillman v London General Transport Services Ltd 14.4.99 EAT 498/97. There is no reason why an employer should not take Community law into account, but the law it must apply should be limited to the most obvious propositions of employment law and such other relevant law as the employee brought to its attention.
