Pitterson-Donaldson v Manchester City Council

Unfair dismissal – Determination whether dismissal fair or unfair. The employment tribunal dismissed the employee's claims of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination and concluded that the employee had been dismissed fairly for gross misconduct. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in dismissing the employee's appeal, held that the test of perversity was a high one which had not been reached in the present case and that the tribunal had not substituted its own views for those of the employer.
