Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust v Roldan  IRLR 721 CA
unfair dismissal | disciplinary investigation | witnesses
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".
