Law: Is rehiring the workforce under new terms and conditions redundancy?

The case of Martland v Co-operative Society held that where an employer dismisses the workforce and then offers re-engagement under new terms and conditions it does not amount to redundancy (ie attracting redundancy payments) but could be classed as dismissals for ‘some other substantial reason’.

The employer would of course have to prove the dismissals were fair to avoid a claim.
