    Securicor Guarding Ltd v R [1994] IRLR 633 EAT (0 other reports)

An industrial tribunal's decision that a security guard was unfairly dismissed after he had been charged by the police with sexual offences allegedly committed several years previously is upheld by the EAT in Securicor Guarding Ltd v R. The employee strenuously denied the charges, and his employer had no access to police evidence.
