Unfair dismissal: Employer was entitled to have regard to final warning in deciding to dismiss

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Davies v Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council [2013] EWCA Civ 135 CA, the Court of Appeal held that it was not outside the range of reasonable responses for an employer to rely on a live final warning in conjunction with later misconduct in deciding to dismiss. The warning had been issued in good faith and was not manifestly inappropriate, and there had been prima facie evidence to sustain it.
