The Employment Law & HR Podcast

In this episode 9 of the HR & Employment Law Podcast I bring you a summary of a recent Employment Appeal Tribunal Case, Contract Bottlling Ltd v Cave and McNaughton. In which the Appeal Tribunal gave a very helpful judgement on the way in which deductions from unfair dismissal compensation should be dealt with.

 

The particular issue in this case involved a question over deductions from unfair dismissal compensation due to a principle known as Polkey.  

Particularly you will learn….

  • What the key principle is when deciding unfair dismissal compensation
  • The deductions that can be made from compensation
  • What a ‘Polkey’ deduction is
  • How a ‘Polkey’ deduction is and should be calculated
