Unfair dismissal: Employee's uncertain immigration status constituted reasonable grounds for dismissal

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Kurumuth v NHS Trust North Middlesex University Hospital EAT/0524/10, the EAT upheld an employment tribunal’s decision that an employer was entitled to dismiss an employee when it was unable to obtain satisfactory evidence of her right to work in the UK.

Key points

  • The employer was entitled to dismiss the employee because of its genuine belief that she did not have the right to work in the UK (albeit that the dismissal was procedurally unfair).
