    Sinclair v Neighbour [1967] 2 QB 279 CA (0 other reports)

In Sinclair v Neighbour [1967] 2 QB 279 CA, the Court of Appeal held that, even though no dishonesty was involved, because the employee had taken his employer's money for a purpose of which he knew the employer would disapprove, the conduct was sufficiently reprehensible to warrant summary dismissal.

An employee owes his or her employer a duty to act in such a way that the employer can have confidence in the employee.
