Thomas (1) and Comsoft (2) v Robinson

F&G Cleaners v Saddington & Others

Beverley Sunderland acted for F&G Cleaners at the appeal stage (not for the original tribunal). This case related to automatic unfair dismissal following a TUPE transfer when the Claimants were offered the opportunity to be self employed contractors. The Tribunal said that it was not a failure to mitigate by the claimants not accepting the jobs on a self employed basis and the EAT said that this was not wrong. They would have lost their statutory rights even though they would have been lost if they were dismissed anyway. The Tribunal had considered everything including inferior terms. http://bit.ly/1jmBUuP
