Airbus UK Ltd. v Wilson - No claim for compensatory award on unfair dismissal  EAT
Mr Wilson was a semi-skilled fitter at the Airbus factory at Broughton, Cheshire. He had a severe accident in February 2003, which was the fault of Airbus. He was later dismissed and claimed disability discrimination and unfair dismissal.
He did NOT claim compensation for loss of earnings at the employment tribunal, intending to make that claim in a court (where there are no statutory limits to the amount which can be awarded). He won.
