Unfair dismissal remedies: Post-dismissal conduct not relevant to compensation

This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Soros and Soros v Davison and Davison [1994] IRLR 264 EAT (0 other reports)

In Soros and Soros v Davison and Davison the EAT holds that events occurring after dismissal - in this case the employees' alleged breaches of confidence about their employer - cannot be taken into account in assessing the compensatory award.

It is well known that evidence of misconduct which takes place during employment, but is discovered only after dismissal, is not admissible in determining whether the dismissal was fair or unfair (W Devis and Sons Ltd v Atkins [1977] IRLR 314).
