Grayson v Paycare (a company limited by guarantee)

Employment – Unfair dismissal. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT) allowed the employee's appeal against the employment tribunal's decision that held that, notwithstanding that the employee had been unfairly dismissed, he should receive no compensatory award because, if a fair procedure had been followed, he would have been dismissed by the same date in any event. The EAT held that the decision to reduce the compensatory award by 100% was unsustainable in law and it set out a number of considerations which a tribunal should take into account when assessing whether it should make a reduction in the compensatory award for the chance of a fair dismissal.
