    Western Leisure v Flynn and Ambridge EAT/375/92 (0 other reports)

In Western Leisure v Flynn and Ambridge, the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that the dismissals of two employees for suspected dishonesty were unfair because the employer's investigation into the matter was inadequate and intimidating. The EAT also approves the industrial tribunal's conclusion that, even if the inquiry had been fair, it was unlikely that the employer would have been able to establish and apportion guilt between the two suspects, and dismissal of both would have been inevitable.
