Berkeley Catering Ltd v Jackson: a case of malicious redundancy

Posted on 19 February, 2021 by | Harry Sheehan

"In the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many employment practitioners are seeing an increase in instructions relating to redundancy processes. The first stage of the enquiry any employment tribunal would undertake into such a matter is to consider whether the dismissal was actually by reason of redundancy. This blog post addresses what is necessary to constitute a redundancy situation and considers in particular the recent guidance provided by the EAT in Berkeley Catering Ltd v Jackson UKEAT/0074/20."
