Remedy for employer's failure to comply with order for re-engagement (Court of Appeal judgment) - R. (on the application of Mackenzie) v University of Cambridge [CA] 20.06.19

Mon, 24 Jun 2019

The only remedy for an employer's failure to comply with an order for re-engagement was a liability on the employer to pay an additional award under the Employment Rights Act 1996 s.117. The re-engagement order did not create an enforceable obligation on the employer to actually re-engage the employee.
