George v Brent London Borough Council

Employment tribunal – Decision. The Employment tribunal had found that the employer's refusal to allow the employee a trial period for alternative employment in the course of a redundancy exercise was not sufficient to render the offer of alternative employment unreasonable and the dismissal unfair. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the employee's appeal, held that the tribunal's reasoning was insufficient and had not met the requisite standard. Accordingly, the matter would be remitted to the same tribunal for reconsideration.
