Olayemi v Athena Medical Centre and another

Unfair dismissal – Determination whether dismissal fair or unfair. In dismissing the employer's appeal against the findings by the employment tribunal (the tribunal) of breach of contract, unfair dismissal and discrimination by reason of sex, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held, inter alia, that the employer had failed to show the reason why the deductions from the employee's wages had been reduced, and that the tribunal had not erred in its approach to the burden of proof when considering the complaints of discrimination. The employee's appeal, against the tribunal's rejection of a claim for reduction of wages during a relevant time period, was allowed.
