Employer acted reasonably in not waiting for outcome of criminal proceedings
Donaghey v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (Jobcentre Plus) ET/1502952/08
criminal proceedings | benefits | unfair dismissal
If an employee faces criminal prosecution for reasons that could also result in his dismissal, should the employer wait for the outcome of those proceedings, or begin its internal disciplinary process immediately? Jobcentre Plus faced that decision in this case.
