University of Technology, Jamaica v Industrial Disputes Tribunal and others (Jamaica)

Employment – Contract of service. In employee dismissal cases, the Privy Council ruled that the Industrial Disputes Tribunal, Jamaica, was entitled to take a fully objective view of the entire circumstances of a case before it, rather than concentrate on the reasons given by an employer, in order to determine whether an employer's decision to dismiss had been justifiable. It was to consider matters that existed at the time of dismissal, even if those matters were not considered by, or even known to, the employer at that time.
