This week Nick Robertson takes a look at three important cases involving the right to have legal representation at a disciplinary hearing and whether an employee on a final warning who is subsequently dismissed for further misconduct is entitled to notice pay, a case where the EAT consider whether an employer should have complied with the provisions of the Acas Code of Practice, when it was dismissing an employee on the grounds of "some other substantial reason” and a case looking at the circumstances in which an employer can be liable to a whistleblower for failing to do something, rather than for directly acting against the whistleblower.
