Employment tribunals do not have to delve too deeply into the reasons why an earlier warning was issued when an employee is later dismissed for further misconduct or poor performance while that warning is still live, as we can see from this judgment. They need to look behind the original warning only in exceptional circumstances, for example where there is evidence that it was issued in bad faith.
