    Laws Stores Ltd v Oliphant [1978] IRLR 251 EAT (0 other reports)

Generally, dismissal of an employee for a single act of misconduct where the offence in question is specified as one that will result in dismissal under the company's disciplinary rules and procedure, is likely to result in a finding of fair dismissal. But, as Laws Stores Ltd v Oliphant (3.5.78) shows, this will not always be so.
