Fast forward to July: redundancies were announced and a restructure. Because there are 2 people doing his job -my husband (furloughed) and his colleague (not furloughed)- they both were interviewed for one job. My husband was told he was not successful. The person who was not furloughed got the job.
It was obvious that was going to be result. We believe he was disadvantaged because he was the one who was furloughed based on his family needs. Do you think there is a way to argue unfair dismissal? He has been in his job for 5 years.
NOTE Unfair dismissal according to .gov.ukSituations when your dismissal is likely to be unfair includes:
