Christou and another v London Borough of Haringey  IRLR 379 CA
Reports relating to this case:
- 28 May 2013
In Christou and another v London Borough of Haringey  IRLR 379 CA, the Court of Appeal held that there is no rule of law precluding an employer from reopening disciplinary proceedings and imposing a harsher penalty such as dismissal. The issue was whether or not it was reasonable for the employer to do so, and the fact that the employees in this case had previously been given a warning in relation to the same matter did not render the dismissals unfair.
- 13 March 2013
The Court of Appeal has held that an employer's decision to start a second set of disciplinary proceedings after an employee has already been disciplined for the same offence does not automatically render a subsequent dismissal unfair.
