Commission for Healthcare Audit & Inspection v Ward - suitability of alternative post offered in redundancy situation has a bearing on the unreasonableness of refusing it - EAT 6.3.08
Mrs Ward was Head of Resourcing, but a restructure in May 2006 led to the end of that post. The Commission offered her an alternative post - which she rejected as "not suitable". She raised a formal grievance about the process being followed in September 2006. She sought further information about the post, which was eventually partly given when she was offered it for the third time in January 2007. By now she was on gardening leave, and relations between her and the Commission had deteriorated.
