A person carrying a cardboard box with the word "Dismissed" written on it

Is it fair to dismiss an employee who fails to declare bankruptcy?

An interesting case where there was no written requirement to tell the employer about bankruptcy

In this episode 197 of the podcast I bring you details of the case of Pubbi v Your-Move.co.uk heard by the Employment Appeal Tribunal dealing with unfair dismissal.

In this episode I cover:

  • The facts of the case
  • The decision of the employment tribunal
  • Assessment of the reasonableness of the employers decision to dismiss
  • Advice on the case
  • Why employers need to be prescriptive of their requirements of staff
  • Some alternative scenarios in this case
  • The decision of the employment appeal tribunal
