Richard W. Painter and Ann E. M. Holmes

Titles in the Casebook on series provide readers with a comprehensive selection of case law extracts for their studies. Extracts have been chosen from a wide range of historical and contemporary cases to illustrate the reasoning processes of the courts and to show how legal principles are developed. This chapter analyses the law of unfair dismissal, particularly the provisions of the Employment Rights Act (ERA) 1996. It elaborates on the law of unfair dismissal in four stages: Has a dismissal taken place? Is the applicant qualified to make a claim? Is the dismissal fair or unfair? What remedies are available? In addition, the chapter presents a critique on the law of unfair dismissal, specifically on the procedures done by the courts to render whether or not a dismissal is unfair. It analyses the concept of the reasonable employer and the dilution of procedural fairness as judges are more than willing to put less emphasis on the need to follow a fair procedure.

This chapter discusses ‘excusatory’ defences. These are defences that are concerned with absence of fault or culpability in a broader sense than is understood by a ‘fault element’ when such an element is included in the definition of an offence. Even when an accused person (say) intended to harm another person, and thus possessed the fault element in the definition of the crime, he or she may still be all but blameless if, for example, what was done was done only because he or she would be killed if the action was not undertaken. In that regard, the chapter covers duress and coercion, reasonable mistake, and ‘putative’ defences. The ‘defence’ of intoxication is also tackled here, even though it is not really an excuse in the sense just explained.

Sir William Wade and Christopher Forsyth

This chapter examines the sovereign principle that powers must be exercised reasonably and in good faith and on proper grounds — in other words, that they must not be abused. This is one of the twin pillars that uphold the structure of administrative law. Topics discussed include the justification for review on substantive grounds; the rule of reason; the principle of proportionality; categories of unreasonableness; mixed motives and good faith; and statutory reasonableness.
