Dismissal for Using Bad Language Deemed Unfair

When is dismissal a valid first and final disciplinary sanction? In a recent case (UD 1525/2012) a customer service rep for a waste re-cycling company who had used expletives and offensive language with her colleagues was awarded €12,500 for unfair dismissal

Employee Dismissed for use of Mobile Phone !

A fair ground operator who was dismissed for using his mobile phone whilst operating a fairground ride was unfairly dismissed and awarded €4,000.

When Dismissal is a Costly Step Too Far ?

Two recent cases published by the EAT once again illustrate the difficulty that employers face in arriving at a fair outcome when making a decision to dismiss employees for misconduct. In both cases involving large retail organisations, the decisions to dismiss were deemed dis-proportionate despite admitted fraudulent behavior and the existence of a previous final written warning.
