This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Metroline West Ltd v Ajaj; Ajaj v Metroline West Ltd EAT/0185/15 & EAT/0295/15, the EAT held that an employment tribunal erred in concluding that an employee was unfairly and wrongfully dismissed where the tribunal had wrongly substituted its view that the employee had not been capable of performing his role for the employer's actual reason for dismissal, which was the employee's dishonesty.
