Huddersfield University v Duxbury 
Decision NumberEAT 72
Legal BodyEmployment Appeal Tribunal (UKEAT)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionDismissal
The claimant, a lecturer at the respondent university, was found to have been unfairly dismissed. The claimant sought a reinstatement order and this was granted by the Tribunal. The issue was that the respondent refused to reinstate the claimant. Therefore the Tribunal awarded:
- Basic Award - £11,025
- Compensatory Award - £67,469.78; and
- Additional Award - £27,300
The respondent argued that the compensatory award should have been capped at one year’s gross pay. This should have taken into account the compensatory award and the additional award. The respondent appealed this decision.
The EAT allowed the appeal.
