The article summarises that "An employee swore at a customer. During the disciplinary hearing to other incidents were raised. As a consequence the work was dismissed. A claim for unfair dismissal ensued because their employer at bases decision on the cumulative impact of the incidents."

It then goes on to explain "The employee worked in a post office. In December 2009 an incident occurred in which the worker swore in front of a customer. The employer brought disciplinary proceedings and during its investigation to previous incidents emerged. The employee however was never given the chance to comment on those are the two incidents.

The above-mentioned article informs that "The employer had taken into account all three incidents and decided that any sanction other than dismissal would be unable to prevent the employee’s allegedly abusive aggressive and irrational behaviour from re-occurring. The employee brought a claim for unfair dismissal. The employment tribunal dismissed the claim. Although the employer was wrong basing his decision on the cumulative impact of the three incidents the December 2009 incident alone had justified its decision. The employee appealed."

It further explains that "The issue was whether the tribunal had been wrong" and the appeal would be allowed.It was decided that "The tribunal had been wrong in law. It had substituted its own reason for dismissal for that of the employer. Having gone through the evidence it had arrived at the position that the December 2009 incident had not been the sole basis on which the employee had been dismissed. However the tribunal had then proceeded to ignore that reason leading to the conclusion that there might be a likelihood of recurrence and to identify that is the reason for dismissal. That reasoning had been entirely unsound."
