Mealing v Edmonds t/a The Gatehouse Diner ET/2701810/11
unfair dismissal | personal dispute | refusal to communicate with colleague
In this case, a small employer had to deal with a familiar problem for employers: what to do if employees' behaviour becomes unprofessional because they have fallen out with each other.
Ms Mealing worked in a small diner, which had a small number of staff who worked in a confined space. It was evident to the tribunal that this working environment "required goodwill and cooperation between those who worked there".
