The article discusses the British Employment Appeals Tribunal's (EAT) ruling on the unfair dismissal case filed by journalist Richard Gizbert against ABC News Intercontinental on grounds of health and safety after ABC fired him for refusing to go to war zones. The EAT held that Gizbert could not claim unfair dismissal on such grounds as he alerted his employer to the dangers of such travel. EAT thought ABC could have selected Gizbert for redundancy because he refused to go to the war zones.
