Hamer v Kaltz Ltd

Employment – Unfair dismissal. The employment tribunal (the tribunal) found that the employee's dismissal for making a protected disclosure had been unfair and it made a basic award and a compensatory award. The employer successfully appealed. On remission, the tribunal considered the employee's conduct and decided that no compensatory award would be made. It held that there should be a 10% reduction in the basic award in respect of the employee's conduct. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the employee's appeal, held that the tribunal's decision to make no compensatory award could not stand. The appropriate reduction was 40%.
