EAT UNFAIR DISMISSAL – Reasonableness of dismissal
The Employment Tribunal Judgment was given a generous reading paying attention to the correct self-directions. It did not err in finding the dismissal of the Claimant for misconduct was open to a reasonable employer.
The incorrect self-direction applying Burchell without noting the change in the burden of proof in 1980, whilst unforgivable and a distraction, did not affect the result.
