Employment Breakfast Briefing: An update on handling disciplinary issues
Free to attend
In this session, we will look at some of the trickier aspects of the disciplinary process and provide a reminder of the risks of claims when things go wrong.
We will also review recent case law which sheds light on the requirements for a fair and non-discriminatory disciplinary process and outcome.
Agoreyo v London Borough of Lambeth (High Court): when will suspending an employee pending investigation be a fundamental breach of contract?
Fleming v East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EAT): might an employee be able to rely on a covert recording of conversations which took place during breaks in a disciplinary hearing?
Mbubaegbu v Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (EAT): when will a series of acts (none of which by themselves would amount to gross misconduct) be serious enough to undermine the relationship of trust and confidence?
City of York Council v Grosset (Court of Appeal): might a dismissal be discriminatory if, unknown to the employer, the reason for the dismissal was misconduct arising from a disability?
