A Friday blog… (of no legal significance whatsoever).

The recent decision of the Employment Appeal Tribunal in GM Packaging (UK) Ltd v Haslem confirms, contrary to the opinion of the employment tribunal, that it was not unfair or unreasonable to dismiss an employee for engaging in sexual activity in the company’s offices and accidentally recording derogatory remarks about his boss on a Dictaphone.

The employment tribunal had been wrong to substitute its own view as to what was a reasonable response by the employer to such behaviour, nothing rather dryly that the employee concerned had shown a complete lack of respect. A copy of the judgment is here.
