Barot v London Borough of Brent  EAT
It was reasonable for ET to raise 'SOSR' defence at hearing in circumstances where employee was not prejudiced
Ms Barot worked as a senior accountant in Brent's Children and Families Directorate. EAT held that the ET was correct to find that a redundancy situation was created when the employer reorganised the Directorate and introduced requirement for skills Ms Barot was not considered to have. The Respondent had a diminished requirement for the kind of work the Claimant had carried out hitherto.
