Put simply this means that the employee must be taken back on terms comparable with those that he or she enjoyed prior to dismissal.

Re-engagement is one of the remedies for unfair dismissal. The other two are reinstatement and a compensatory award. In reality reinstatement and re-engagement would rarely be awarded by a tribunal due to the administrative difficulty of policing them and secondly because by this time any relationship between the parties is likely to have broken down.


Other features of re-engagement are that the employer only has to do what is reasonably practicable to achieve re-engagement; the employee is entitled to back pay and any improvements in terms and conditions and continuity of employment is also protected.
