Pay and Benefits Magazine published an article on 29 July 2013 reporting on some of the latest decisions from employment tribunal cases including that of Langford v Barking and Dagenham Primary Care Trust [2013] All ER (D) 07 (Jul).The article summarises that "Tribunal ruled that no compensation would be awarded because the employee’s conduct had been a contributing factor" but that’s an issue arose as to whether or not this decision was correct.

It explains "The employee brought proceedings before employment tribunal for unfair dismissal. The tribunal held that the employee’s claim was well founded principally on the basis of a lack of reasonable investigation by the employer and because there had been an element of procedural unfairness. The tribunal further found that applying the principles in Polkey V AE Drayton Services [1987] it had been inappropriate to make any compensatory award to the employee because there had been contributory conduct on her part."

However we are informed that the employee appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal against the finding.

The above-mentioned article tells is that "The tribunal further considered the basic award to which the Polkey principle did not apply and concluded that there should be no reduction in the basic award on the basis of contributory conduct. The employer cross-appealed against that finding."We are then informed the both parties had agreed that the appeal and cross-appeal should go to a full hearing.

The article concludes by telling us that "The EAT’s practice is not simply to allow appeals followed by remission without endorsing that agreement. In this case the EAT was content to endorse the agreement between the parties. It had been the understanding of the parties that the hearing before the tribunal had been limited to the issue of liability. If further evidence would be admitted on the issues of Polkey and contributory conduct; this matter should proceed on the basis of argument only."
