Potter v Sound Control Modern Music Stores Ltd - Default judgement in absence of response cannot dismiss parts of the claim  EAT
When Sound Control went into administration Mr Potter was made redundant. He claimed unfair dismissal and a protective award for failure to consult. When the employment tribunal received no response from either his ex-employers or the administrators, it issued a default judgment confirming that Mr Potter had been made redundant but stating that his claim for a protective award was “not well-founded”. Mr Potter appealed.
