Statutory employee protection against unfair dismissal has operated in the United Kingdom for over two decades. Despite deregulation in other areas of individual legal rights during the 1980s, protection against unfair dismissal has emerged virtually intact. In order to help explain its survival, this article draws on empirical research to explore what the law in operation has meant for employees, unions, employers, and the state. Although offering some protection to workers against arbitrary or most unreasonable employer behavior, the law has operated in a way sensitive to employer needs and interests, and managerial prerogative has been supported.
