The employer, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, appealed against the tribunal's finding of unfair dismissal and a reduction of 20% for contributory fault. The Employment Appeal Tribunal held that, in respect of protected disclosures, the tribunal had not precisely applied the statutory test in s 43A of the Employment Rights Act 1996. The tribunal had failed to apply the test in s 98 of the Act on the question of unfair dismissal. The appeal was also allowed on points related to contributory conduct and an item of expenses.
