Towart v Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust ET/2505486/2010

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal of NHS worker who pleaded guilty to minor offences

    Date:
    6 October 2011

    The NHS trust in this case unfairly treated two relatively minor criminal convictions as an adequate reason to dismiss a worker, in a case that is a cautionary tale for employers that treat a criminal conviction as an automatic reason for dismissal.
