Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust v Roldan: EAT 2 Sep 2009

S.98A(2) ERA
Polkey deduction
Contributory fault
The Employment Tribunal erred when if found procedural defects in the investigation by the Respondent of the allegations of the Claimant’s misconduct. In any event it ought to have allowed evidence and considered Employment Rights Act 1996 s 98A(2).
It wrongly awarded compensation beyond the 6 weeks it found it would take the Claimant to find work, attributing the Claimant’s loss to the Respondent’s act of dismissal when it was attributable to proceedings brought before the Crown Court and the professional regulator.
