    Paul v East Surrey District Health Authority [1995] IRLR 305 CA (0 other reports)

An industrial tribunal was not entitled to find that allegedly inconsistent treatment of employees rendered a dismissal for misconduct unfair, holds the Court of Appeal in Paul v East Surrey District Health Authority. The Court emphasises that tribunals should approach claims of disparity of treatment with great care as there will be few cases where circumstances are truly comparable.
