Does a lack of an appeal hearing make a redundancy dismissal unfair?

The importance of following a fair process in an unfair dismissal claim

In this episode 184 of the podcast I bring you details of a recent case decided by the Court of Appeal in respect of unfair dismissal in a redundancy situation. The case is Gwynedd Council and S Barratt & I Hughes

In this episode of the podcast I cover:

  • The basic position with regards to unfair dismissal and redundancy dismissals.
  • Details of the case and why the Judge at the Employment Tribunal decided the dismissal was unfair.
  • What employer’s need to consider when going through a redundancy consultation.
  • Why a failure to allow an appeal against dismissal is one factor to be considered by an employment tribunal in a claim for unfair dismissal.
