re-engagement order

An order made by an *industrial tribunal directing an employer who has unfairly dismissed an employee (see *unfair dismissal) to provide him with comparable or other suitable employment in a post different from that from which he was dismissed (compare *reinstatement order). A re-engagement order might be made, for example, when the employee’s former job no longer exists following a reorganization, but he could be similarly employed in a different post. The order is accompanied by the tribunal’s directions specifying the nature and remuneration for the new employment, benefits that must be restored to the employee, and the date by which he is to be re-engaged. An employer cannot be forced to comply with the order; if he fails to do so the tribunal will award *compensation on the usual principles together with an additional sum.
