Very significant, but to my mind quite troubling. It won't come as a surprise that employment lawyers are frequently asked about whether an underperforming or nuisance employee could possibly be made redundant. The lawyer advises on the risk of doing so and the client makes its choice. I fail to see why this should be deemed to reach the high bar of 'iniquity' (or as suggested in the Judgement 'a deception on the Tribunal'). It's not illegal, and not on par with fraud. Surely just a balance of risk, entirely in keeping with the lawyer's role?

Perhaps the element of discrimination makes it worse. But in my opinion, a dangerous erosion of legal privilege.
