Employment Team E-Bulletin - June 2017 II

Honesty and Integrity in Employment and Disciplinary Proceedings - an update

A fortnight ago, I drafted an e-bulletin commenting on the tension between two recent cases: Malins and the case of Thames Valley, following hot on Malins’ heels. That e-bulletin can be viewed here.

Employment Team E-Bulletin - June 2017

Honesty and/or Integrity - a distinction without a difference?

The Issue

Whether in a pure employment law context or whether looking at professional disciplinary proceedings, a breach of the standards of, or obligations of, honesty and integrity will usually be fatal to the employment or professional relationship.

For Whom the School Bell Tolls

Isle of Wight Council v Platt

Background

It seemed at the beginning almost too good to be true, and now, it appears that it was. But Jon Platt’s victorious run through the English legal system has come to an end before Lady Hale, sitting in the Supreme Court, who found he did, in fact, have a case to answer and has remitted his case back to the Magistrates’ Court.
