    Russell v College of North West London EAT/0314/13 (0 other reports)

In DLA Piper's latest case report, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) tackled the thorny issue of applying sickness absence criteria in redundancy selection to disabled employees at risk of redundancy. The EAT ruled that a college's redundancy selection method was a rational, non-discriminatory approach available to a reasonable employer and upheld the college's appeal against the tribunal's finding of unfair dismissal.
