    Ladbroke Entertainments Ltd v Clark [1987] ICR 585 EAT (0 other reports)

In Clark v Ladbroke Entertainments Ltd 20.1.87 EAT/296/86, the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's ruling that the company's local general manager had not acted unfairly when he dismissed an employee for misconduct without first consulting those who had investigated the incident.

As a general principle, it is advisable for the person who takes the decision to dismiss to find out the views of those responsible for the investigation into an allegation of misconduct.
