Hollier v Plysu: CA 1983

The Tribunal may reduce any compensatory award by such proportion as it considers just and equitable. A Tribunal’s decision on this question is ‘so obviously a matter of impression, opinion, and discretion, that there must be a plain error of law or perversity before an appellate court can intervene’. The tribunal must consider: ‘what, if any, part the employee’s own conduct played in causing or contributing to his or her dismissal and then, in the light of that finding, decide what, if any, reduction should be made in assessment of his or her loss.’
