In Mayor and Burgesses of the London Borough of Hounslow v Klusova EAT/0325/06 the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that an employee dismissed when the Home Office informed her employer that she did not have permission to work in the UK was dismissed because her continued employment would have involved the contravention of a 'duty or restriction' imposed by an enactment.
An employee was fairly dismissed when he lost his driving licence, holds the EAT in John Liddington Ltd v Blackett, given that his job involved substantial travelling and the employer had concluded, after careful consideration of alternative arrangements, that the job could not be done properly without a car.
