Unison has said it will appeal a High Court ruling last week that held proceedings challenging the requirement to pay fees in employment tribunals were premature.
When evaluating the fairness of a claimant’s selection for redundancy, a tribunal must consider whether or not the dismissal was reasonable in all the circumstances.
When deciding whether an employee has been fairly or unfairly dismissed on ill health grounds, the Court of Session held in BS v Dundee City Council that the critical question was whether any reasonable employer would have waited longer before dismissing them.
