Lennon-Knight v Yakira Group Ltd: EAT 16 Nov 2016

EAT Unfair Dismissal: Automatically Unfair Reasons – UNFAIR DISMISSAL – Compensation
In assessing future loss of earnings the Employment Tribunal applied a two year cut-off in a case where it was common ground, based on agreed medical evidence, that the Claimant would never regain her previous career position of Finance Director on equivalent terms. Wardle [2011] ICR 1290, paragraphs 47 to 54, and Chagger [2010] ICR 397, paragraph 74, (both Court of Appeal) considered. Appeal allowed and future loss issue remitted to the same Employment Tribunal for reconsideration.
