Papadakis v Mermaid Inn Ltd EAT/759/94

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal: Dismissal was not for asserting statutory right

    Date:
    1 October 1995

    In Papadakis v Mermaid Inn Ltd the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that the employee was dismissed for misconduct, and not because he had alleged that his employer had infringed his statutory right not to have unlawful deductions made from his wages. In the circumstances, therefore, the employee's claim that his dismissal had been automatically unfair failed.
