Dhunna v CreditSights Ltd: [2014] EWCA Civ 1238; [2014] WLR (D) 404

‘An employee who was working or based abroad at the time of his dismissal did not fall within the territorial jurisdiction of section 94(1) of the Employment Rights Act 1996, which provided for the right not to be unfairly dismissed, or section 10 of the Employment Relations Act 1999, which provided for the right to be accompanied at a disciplinary hearing, subject to the exception that he might fall within that jurisdiction if he had much stronger connections both with Great Britain and with British employment law than with any other system of law. In determining that question a comparison of the merits of the local employment law of the employee’s workplace at the time of his dismissal with that of the employment law applicable in Great Britain was not relevant or required.’
