Compensation for dismissal arising from unlawful detriment - Royal Mail Ltd v Jhuti [CA] 20.10.17 (Unreported)
Where an employee's line manager had misled the person who had taken a decision to dismiss a whistleblower but had himself no involvement in the actual dismissal, there was a strong argument for attributing his motivation to the employer, but that argument had been rejected by the majority in Orr v Milton Keynes Council  EWCA Civ 62. There was, however, no obstacle to the employee recovering compensation for her dismissal arising from an unlawful detriment under the Employment Rights Act 1996 s.47B. That was a matter to be remitted to an employment tribunal in a remedy hearing.http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2017/1632.html
