Parsons v Airplus International Ltd UKEAT/0111/17/JOJ

Appeal against the dismissal of the Claimant's claim of automatic unfair dismissal by reason of various protected disclosures she had made. Appeal dismissed.

The Claimant was dismissed in circumstances where there was a mismatch between the Respondent and the Claimant. The ET rejected her claim that she had been automatically unfairly dismissed as a result of making protected disclosures. Save in one respect, it did not accept the matters relied on by the Claimant amounted to protected disclosures; it was, in any event, satisfied that the dismissal was not for a prohibited reason. The Claimant appealed.

The EAT dismissed the appeal. Despite the ET erring in respect of one disclosure, it was apparent that the ET had rejected the Claimant's case on the facts and, on the findings made, there was nothing that could properly be found to amount to a qualifying disclosure. More particularly, the ET had found as a fact that the disclosures were solely made in the Claimant's self-interest.
