  • Case of the week: Mitigating factors can make gross misconduct dismissal unfair

    Date:
    30 October 2013

    In DLA Piper's case of the week, Brito-Babapulle v Ealing Hospital NHS Trust, the Employment Appeal Tribunal highlighted that, even when the employer believes there to be gross misconduct, such a dismissal may not always be within the range of reasonable responses, as mitigating factors may mean that the sanction of dismissal was not in fact reasonable.
