This article cites a number of court cases involving personnel management in Great Britain. A court held that the Royal Bank of Scotland being the cause of its employee's illness does not make that employee's ill-health dismissal automatically unfair, but it is a factor to be taken into account. In a separate case, tribunals do not have to follow two recommended approaches for calculating compensation for pension loss.
