Stanco Exhibitions Plc v Wright - Tribunal is right to speculate on what might have happened had proper dismissal and consultation procedures been followed  EAT
Stanco dismissed Mr Wright, an electrican, because he was redundant. They gave him no notice and there was no consultation. An employment tribunal held that the dismissal was automatically unfair due to the lack of any procedure being followed. It held that, had there been consultation, Mr Wright would have remained employed by Stanco, in an alternative role, for the rest of his working life. Stanco appealed, claiming that there was too much "speculation" by the tribunal.
