Gibson v London Borough of Hounslow and another UKEAT/0033/18/BA & UKEAT/0129/18

Appeal against the ET’s rejection of the Claimant’s claims of whistleblowing detriment and dismissal, and limiting her compensatory award for unfair dismissal to 6 weeks following dismissal. Appeal dismissed on nearly all issues; findings, on 2 detriments that were relied on, were remitted to the same ET.

The Claimant, a US citizen on a sponsored tier 2 migrant visa, worked as a class teacher on a 3-year contract. The Claimant made a number of complaints and allegations during that time, and she was dismissed on the date that her fixed-term contract ended and her visa was due to expire. The Claimant brought proceedings for protected interest disclosure and dismissal, unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and holiday pay.

The EAT largely upheld the ET's liability and remedy judgments, but considered that the parties were entitled to know the ET's findings and conclusions on the 2 issues that had been overlooked.
