Unfair dismissal Reasons justifying dismissal. The Employment Appeal Tribunal held, in upholding the appeal of an employee against, inter alia, the employment tribunal's decision not to make an order for his re-engagement at the employer company despite finding that his dismissal had been unfair, that the tribunal had failed to take into account relevant evidence in making its decision on the practicability of making such an order. Accordingly, the judgment of the tribunal not to make an order for re-engagement would be set aside.
