Legal BodyLabour Court (LC)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionUnfair Dismissal, Redundancy and Reorganisation
This appeal concerned the manner in which the Respondent employee was dismissed from his position in the Appellant company. The Respondent claimed that he was informed that he had been selected for redundancy effective immediately, with no consultation, in advance of the decision or any alternatives explored. He had not been afforded a right of appeal or representation in this regard.
The Court accepted that the Respondent's position had become redundant but nonetheless held that the conduct of the Appellant in relation to the dismissal was unreasonable. Accordingly, the Court found that the Respondent was unfairly dismissed , although compensation was reduced from €35,000 to €20,000.
