Home Office v Evans and Laidlaw - Civil Service redundancies  EAT
Mr Evans and Mr Laidlaw were both employed by the Home Office running its immigration service at Waterloo International Rail Terminal. That service was closed. Mr Evans and Mr Laidlaw refused to say where they would prefer to work and then rejected jobs at Heathrow. They resigned in September 2004 and claimed constructive unfair dismissal. They claimed that the Home Office was in breach of its redundancy procedures, in particular that it had represented to the relevant trade union that it would consult and that it had failed to do so.
