Worrell v Hootenanny Brixton Ltd

Employment – Wrongful dismissal. In allowing the employee's appeal against a finding by the employment tribunal of wrongful dismissal but where the award of compensation had been reduced by 100% due to contributory fault, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that the possible alternative findings of deliberate misconduct or gross negligence on the employee's behalf did not justify the tribunal not making any factual finding as to conduct. The tribunal's failure to make those findings of fact had made it impossible to know why it had been concluded that the employee's conduct had been the sole cause of a dismissal or why it had not been just and equitable for the employee to receive a basic award pursuant to s 122(2) of the Employment Rights Act 1996.
