Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal: Dismissal on grounds of personality is fair despite technical competence

    2 December 2005

    In Perkin v St George's Healthcare NHS Trust, the Court of Appeal holds that an employment tribunal was entitled to make a 100% reduction to the compensation of a senior executive whose dismissal was procedurally unfair, on the basis that his conduct at the disciplinary hearing was such that it destroyed any possibility of him working with senior colleagues in the future.
