The article discusses how British employees working abroad can claim unfair dismissal and disability discrimination in Great Britain under certain conditions. The House of Lords gave three examples of employees working abroad who could claim unfair dismissal in Britain in Lawson v. Serco Ltd. These include employees who are "peripatetic" and based in Britain (like pilots based at a British airport); working in a British enclave abroad and posted abroad by a British employer "for the purposes of a business carried on in Great Britain."
