Webinar Fair Selection for Redundancy: The Latest Cases Webinar (On-demand)

Overview


The number of redundancies being declared has grown rapidly in the recent past, reflecting the economic situation. At the same time, a number of appellate decisions have focused upon claims for unfair dismissal following selection for redundancy.

This webinar will deal in particular with the following aspects of this important area:

  • Determining the pool. In what circumstances is a pool of one acceptable? Capita Hartshead v Byard; Halpin v Sandpiper Brooks; and Wrexham Golf Club v Ingham
  • Deciding upon criteria. How much discretion does the employer have, and how objective must the criteria be? Samsung Electronics v Monte d’Cruz; and Nicholls v Rockwell Automation
  • Scoring: to what extent is the process adopted by the employer subject to scrutiny? Watkins v Crouch
  • Is there any advantage to the employer in adopting a strategy of dismissing all those at risk and asking them to re-apply? Morgan v Welsh Rugby Union
  • Competing for new roles: is the employer’s duty the same as for redundancy? Green v London Borough of Barking
  • Redundancy and disability discrimination: Charlesworth v Dransfield Engineering Services
  • Redundancy and pregnancy discrimination: Guisado v Bankia SA
