Inchcape Retail Limited v Symonds UKEAT 0316/09/DA
An Employment Tribunal erred when it substituted its view for that of management conducting a redundancy selection exercise. It was not for the Employment Tribunal to decide the management were wrong in law to add one person whose job was redundant into the pool, and in the award of points to him, the Claimant and others. Since the Claimant did not challenge the criteria, and these included subjective assessment by managers, the award of points could not be faulted as a question of law.
