G4S Security Services (UK) Ltd v Grant: EAT 8 May 2007

EAT Unfair Dismissal – Constructive dismissal
The Employment Tribunal found that an employee had been constructively dismissed in circumstances where he resigned following his employers’ refusal to pay him benefits under an ‘Injury on Duty’ scheme. The tribunal found that, in so doing, the employers had acted as no reasonable employer would have done and that they were motivated by being ill disposed towards the employee as he had become a ‘thorn in the flesh of management’ over health and safety issues. On appeal, it was argued that the tribunal had failed to apply the appropriate ‘contract’ test. The Employment Appeal Tribunal were not persuaded that the tribunal had failed to do so.
