Murray and another v Foyle Meats Ltd [1999] IRLR 562 HL

Reports relating to this case:

  • Redundancy: Definition of redundancy entails factual inquiry

    1 August 1999

    In Murray and another v Foyle Meats Ltd, the House of Lords holds that the language of the statutory definition of redundancy asks two questions of fact. The first is whether or not one or other of various states of economic affairs exists, and the second is whether or not the dismissal is attributable, wholly or mainly, to that state of affairs.
