Application of ECHR in redundancy case - Wandsworth LBC v Vining [CA] 28.07.17 (Unreported)

The dismissal of two local authority parks police officers by redundancy did not engage ECHR art.8 or art.14 when read in conjunction with art.8. Their claims for unfair dismissal were dismissed. However, their exclusion from the protections of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 s.188 to s.192 by s.280 of the Act construed in accordance with Redbridge LBC v Dhinsa [2014] EWCA Civ 178, [2014] I.C.R. 834, [2014] C.L.Y. 1135 was a breach of art.11 of the Convention. The court considered how s.280 could be construed in a non-infringing way.
