Bandara v British Broadcasting Corporation EAT/0335/15
unfair dismissal | final written warning | reasonableness of decision to dismiss
The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that where an employee is dismissed for misconduct following an earlier warning that the tribunal has found to be manifestly inappropriate, the tribunal must examine the weight the employer attached to that warning in deciding whether or not the decision to dismiss was within the range of reasonable responses.
