A clear communication that a contract has ended determines the effective date of termination - it’s not something that the parties can simply agree.
A tribunal can hear evidence about protected conversations if the actual date of termination is disputed.
An employer cannot pick and choose when the ‘without prejudice’ rule applies to selectively use information gained during a protected conversation to its advantage in subsequent tribunal proceedings.
An employer could not claim ‘illegality’ as a fair reason to dismiss an employee when the employee failed to provide right-to work documentation.
Including incidents in an investigatory report - which didn’t result in any disciplinary action – didn’t make the subsequent dismissal unfair.
Contrary to long-established practice, employer pension contributions do count towards the calculation of a ‘week’s pay’ says the EAT.
The dismissal of a long-serving employee following derogatory comments about her employer on Facebook was fair.
Elmore v The Governors of Darland High School
Neither a failure to explain why an employee’s appeal had been rejected nor a failure to call witness evidence of the appeal at the tribunal hearing made an employee’s dismissal unfair.
