Case of the Month
4/2024
Automatic unfair dismissal claim
My former London Central Employment Tribunal Judge colleague, Simon Auerbach (now promoted to the EAT ) decided in Accattatis v Fortuna that there can only be one “principal” reason for what was an automatic unfair (health and safety related) dismissal claim. May sound obvious but it often is not. A reminder to the ET and to an employer to choose a reason and show consistency in any subsequent ET3 defence. And if (for instance) it is Conduct and Capability, and they are linked, better to go down the (mis)conduct route in most cases which lends itself more easily to a disciplinary process.
