Claridge v Daler Rowney Ltd - "Range of reasonable responses" test in constructive dismissal cases  EAT
Mr Claridge claimed constructive unfair dismissal by reason of procedural defects in the way that his employer, Rowney Ltd, handled his grievance - particularly delay. The employment tribunal agreed with Mr Claridge that Rowney had acted unreasonably but nevertheless held that Rowney's actions were within the band of reasonable responses open to a reasonable employer. The tribunal concluded that therefore there was no fundamental breach of contract and dismissed Mr Claridge's constructive dismissal claim. Mr Claridge appealed.
