Misconduct: Employment practices relevant to fairness

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Thorn Security Ltd v Agyei the EAT upholds a tribunal's finding that the dismissal of a security guard, for being the worse for wear for drink while on duty, was unfair. The EAT holds that the tribunal was correct to take into account the extremely long working hours permitted by the employer, when assessing whether dismissal was fair in all the circumstances.
