Haslem v GM Packaging (UK) Ltd

Employment – Wrongful dismissal. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) considered the fairness of the dismissal of SH, an employee, after he was found, among other things, to have had sexual relations with another member of staff on company grounds. The EAT held that the employment tribunal had erred in its approach to the issues, and hence the appeal would be allowed. However, it was possible to make a determination on liability, and on the evidence, SH's dismissal had been fair.
