Wardle v Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank  EWCA Civ 545
Compensation for dismissal - chance of finding similar employment
11 May 2011
Court of Appeal
Lord Neuberger MR, Smith, Elias LLJ

Tribunals should not award lifetime earnings and then reduce by a percentage chance of finding other employment.
