    Cavendish v Greater Manchester Buses (South Ltd) (trading as Stagecoach Manchester) [2003] All ER (D) 361 (Nov) CA (0 other reports)

Key points

In Cavendish v Greater Mancheste (South) Ltd (t/a Stagecoach Manchester) 19.12.05 [2005] EWCA (Civ) 1555, the Court of Appeal holds:

  • The employment tribunal was correct to find that the employee - a bus driver who had made protected disclosures about health and safety - had been unfairly dismissed, but not automatically unfairly dismissed by reason of those disclosures.
  • The EAT was correct to uphold the tribunal's decision and to refuse permission to the employee to appeal further to the Court of Appeal on the grounds that there was no error of law by the tribunal.
