    Hussain v Elonex plc [1999] IRLR 420 CA (0 other reports)

Disciplinary procedures that led to the dismissal of an employee for gross misconduct were not flawed, notwithstanding that the employee was not told of the existence of a written statement made to the employer by a witness to the misconduct, holds the Court of Appeal in Hussain v Elonex plc 17.3.99 Court of Appeal. There is no rule of natural justice that witness statements must be disclosed in every case - what is important is fairness in all the circumstances.
