Breakfast Briefing - 25th April 2017Unfair Dismissal Case Law Update

Tuesday 25th April, 2017 |
Radisson Blu Hotel, Leeds

Free of charge

Attend this seminar to catch up on all the latest unfair dismissal cases that impact on HR practice.

Will gross negligence consistute gross misconduct? Adesokan v Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd is the most important case on this point for many years.

When will it be fair to relocate employees against their wishes (Kellogg, Brown & Root (UK) Ltd v Fitton)?

When will a dismissal decision be tainted by too much HR input (Dronsfield v University of Reading)?

Was a headteacher fairly dismissed for not disclosing her association with a sex offender (A vB)?

We will examine case law on dismissals which rely on expired or disputed warnings (Stratford v Auto Trail).

DWP v Brindley is a reminder that employers must take care to have effective wording in COT3 and settlement agreements.

And we will look at remedies and when an employment tribunal will order reinstatement of a dismissed employee (McBride v Scottish Policy Authority).

Gain insight into all these issues (and more), and their practical application to everyday situations, at this topical presentation.
