    Candecca Resources Ltd v Bishop EAT/1083/98 (0 other reports)

In Candecca Resources Ltd v Bishop 24.6.99 EAT 1083/98, the EAT holds that on a strict application of the statutory provisions, the purpose of a compensatory award is to compensate an applicant for actual out-of-pocket net loss suffered as a consequence of being unfairly dismissed. There was therefore no room for a "scaling" exercise.
