    This decision, which has been upheld by the Court of Appeal, came shortly after the important Supreme Court ruling in R (on the application of G) v Governors of X School and Y City Council [2011] IRLR 756 SC, which limits the application of the European Convention on Human Rights when it comes to disciplinary proceedings. The Supreme Court found that a public sector worker was not automatically entitled to legal representation at a disciplinary hearing.
