EAT Unfair Dismissal – procedural fairness/automatically unfair dismissal
Appellant was dismissed for (allegedly) serious misconduct. ET held disciplinary process flawed but remedied by an appeal which looked only at ‘new’ material. ET held dismissal within range of reasonable responses in light of matters not considered by the employer.
Held: ET could not properly have held appeal remedied original procedural defects. Appellant was unfairly dismissed. Case remitted to a new tribunal to consider compensation and contribution.
