Insley v Accent Catering ET/3200687/2014

smoking | e-cigarettes | dismissal

A school catering assistant was suspended by her employer for using an e-cigarette on school premises. She resigned and claimed that she had been constructively dismissed. The employment tribunal did not uphold her claim, but indicated that if she had not resigned but been dismissed, the tribunal might have judged that dismissal to be unfair.
