O’Hara v Jackstone Froster Ltd: EAT 30 Jan 2006

EAT Unfair Dismissal: Contributory Fault and Practice and Procedure: Appellate Jurisdiction/Reasons/Burns-Barke
Quantum of compensation – employee said illness was aggravated in part from dismissal. Tribunal found dismissal unfair but employee would have been dismissed 13 months later for sickness absence. Tribunal did not address in its reasons employee’s contention that illness was in part a consequence of dismissal, even after being invited to give further reasons. Matter remitted to fresh Tribunal (Chairman having retired a year ago).
