Successful appeal against dismissal automatically revives contract

Author headshot image Posted by , Partner

In Salmon v Castlebeck Care (Teesdale) Limited and others the EAT has held that where an employee successfully appeals against the employer’s decision to dismiss under a contractual appeal procedure, this automatically revives the Contract of Employment without the employer needing to make a specific decision to reinstate the employee, even if the employer has not communicated the outcome of the appeal to the employee.

One to note in the rare instances where an appeal against dismissal is successful.
