Dziedziak v Future Electronics Ltd - Tribunal entitled to conclude as it had, for a number of reasons [2012] EAT

(1) A tribunal does not have to address each and every argument put before it when giving judgement, provided it has resolved sufficient for it to answer the issue in dispute. 

(2) Generally an appeal will not be allowed against reasons given in support of a judgement in the appellant's favour, but an exception to this may be made where those reasons have a bearing on any Polkey reduction in compensation. 

Ms Dziedziak worked for 3 years for Future, a company selling electric components. She was selected for redundancy, and dismissed. She claimed that her selection was unfair for a number of reasons, which included sex discrimination due to her circumstances as a single parent. She brought employment tribunal claims for unfair dismissal in relation to redundancy selection, sex discrimination and race discrimination, and won in respect of unfair dismissal and race discrimination.
