    In Fisher v California Cake & Cookie Ltd, the EAT holds that in determining, for the purposes of unfair dismissal compensation, the hypothetical question of whether a fair procedure would have made any difference to the employer's decision to dismiss, it is for the industrial tribunal to arrive at its own conclusion after its own investigation.
