Baker v Abellio London Ltd

Employment – Unfair dismissal. An employer was not obliged by s 15 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 to hold that it was unlawful to employ someone who, although he had the right to work and reside in the UK, had not provided the employer with documents, other than a passport to prove that right. So held the Employment Appeal Tribunal in setting aside the employment tribunal's decision that the employer had established that the dismissal of the employee for failing to provide such documentation fell within s 98(2)(d) of the Employment Rights Act 1996.
