Case summary last updated at 05/02/2020 14:58 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Litster v Forth Dry Dock

This related to an unfair dismissal claim and some regulations enacted by parliament specifically to make the laws comply with an EC regulation. Therefore the courts were to use purposive reasoning so that the regulations should be interpreted on the basis that they mean to be in compliance with EU directives and case decisisons and, where necessary, this means inferring words or meanings that are not explicitly state in the directive.
