Everest’s Executors v Cox  1 WLUK 613 is an Employment Law case concerning Redundancy.
Cox (C), a canteen manager, rejected an alternative job offer from her employers. C, however, contended that the reason for doing so was that she had an interview with new caterers. Furthermore, C believed the new caterers would employer her. In fact, the new caterers did not employ C. As a result, C was dismissed and she claimed a redundancy payment. However, the employers argued that C unreasonably rejected the alternative employment offer.
Whether the employee could receive a redundancy payment.
Yes. In Everest’s Executors v Cox, the Employment Tribunal held that C did not act unreasonably. However, the employers appealed against this decision. Nevertheless, the Employment Appeal Tribunal rejected the employers’ appeal.
