Employment Redundancy. Servisair UK Ltd dismissed certain employees on grounds of redundancy. The employees brought proceedings before the employment tribunal (the tribunal) which held that the dismissals had been unfair as there had been no redundancy situation and therefore no potentially fair reason for the employees' dismissals. Servisair appealed. The Employment Appeal Tribunal allowed the appeal on the basis that the tribunal judge had erred in her statement and application of the redundancy test as set out in Murray v Foyle Meats Ltd IRLR 562. The matter was remitted to be heard afresh by a new tribunal.
