Royal Mail Ltd v Jhuti

Unfair dismissal – Dismissal. The employer's appeal against an the employment appeal tribunal's finding of automatic unfair dismissal was allowed in circumstances where judge's reasoning for such findings could not be sustained. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the statutory right not to be unfairly dismissed depended on there being unfairness, as defined, on the part of the employer; and unfair or even unlawful conduct on the part of individual colleagues or managers was immaterial unless it could properly be attributed to the employer.
