automatically unfair dismissal
Cartwright v King's College, London  EWCA Civ 1146
Appeal against an EAT decision which upheld the Employment Tribunal’s ruling that the respondent had complied with Step 1 of the, now repealed, Statutory Disciplinary Procedures and thus the claimant had not been unfairly dismissed. Appeal succeeded, a finding of automatic unfair dismissal was substituted and the case was remitted to the Employment Tribunal for a remedy hearing.

Appeal by respondent against 1) a ruling that the claimant had been automatically unfairly dismissed; 2) application of a 30% uplift to the compensation awarded; and 3) an award for loss of earnings until retirement. Appeal allowed in part: uplift reduced to 10%, and compensatory award to be decided before a differently constituted Tribunal. Automatic unfair dismissal upheld.
