In Laws v London Chronicle (Indicator Newspapers) Ltd [1959] 1 WLR 698 CA, the Court of Appeal held that, although disobedience to a lawful order is misconduct, it may not be sufficiently serious to justify summary dismissal.

Miss Laws had been employed by the London Chronicle as an advertising representative for a period of three weeks when she was called into the office of the chairman and managing director, Mr Brittain, together with a colleague and their manager, Mr Delderfield.
