Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust v Roldan  IRLR 721 CA
Reports relating to this case:
- 11 August 2010
In Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust v Roldan  EWCA Civ 522 CA, the Court of Appeal held that an employment tribunal was entitled to find a dismissal unfair where the reason for the dismissal included an allegation about a secondary incident that had not been particularised, and where there had been a failure to investigate a key dispute of fact between the accuser and accused.

The Court of Appeal has held that the more serious the consequences of dismissal for an employee, the more thorough the disciplinary investigation should be. The Court of Appeal also ruled that, where a case turns on one employee's word against another's, it can be legitimate for the employer to give the accused the benefit of the doubt and to find the accusations "not proven".
