The Case

Employment Dismissal. The Employment Appeal Tribunal dismissed the employee's claims for, inter alia, a golden handshake, and money under a personal health insurance policy after his dismissal due to ill health. The claim for money in lieu of holiday pay whilst off sick was remitted to a different employment tribunal in light of the decision of the Court of Appeal in Larner v NHS Leeds[2012] All ER (D) 273 (Jul).
