The latest on the Woolworths appeal

In the case of USDAW v Ethel Austin Ltd (successors to Woolworths PLC) and another the Employment Appeal Tribunal (‘EAT’) has published its decision permitting the Secretary of State leave to appeal to the Court of Appeal. The EAT has provided the following summary for its decision:

‘There was a compelling reason for permission, including a parallel reference to the CJEU, the importance of the legal issue to industry, and the value of the claims.’

Comment

As previously reported the EAT decision has serious implications for multisite employers and would change the face of collective redundancy consultation. We will keep you updated.
