Swainston v TNS UK Ltd

Employment – Unfair dismissal. The Employment Appeal Tribunal held that an employment tribunal had erred in concluding that, because its decision to cease to provide business development services had been driven by financial considerations and the need to reduce costs, there had been no redundancy situation and that the employee had been dismissed by reason of redundancy. On the facts there had been a redundancy situation and the employee had been fairly dismissed.
