Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal: Reduction appropriate if 'sensible reconstruction of world' is possible

    17 February 2006

    In Gover and others v Propertycare Ltd, the EAT holds that, in an unfair dismissal case, a Polkey reduction may be applied to the compensatory award if the employment tribunal can sensibly reconstruct the world as it would have been had the unfairness not occurred, and forms a view that the employee would have been dismissed in any case.
