Unfair dismissal - Determination whether dismissal fair or unfair - Dismissal for misconduct - Employer accusing employee of theft - Employment tribunal concluding employer not carrying out sufficient investigation - Tribunal refusing to grant employer adjournment after employee adducing evidence late - Employer appealing - Whether tribunal erring in refusing adjournment.
An employment tribunal had been entitled to refuse to grant an adjournment to an employer, where evidence had been adduced late, in circumstances where the question raised by that evidence had been wholly separate from the reason for the final decision of the tribunal, which had been freestanding on the question as to whether or not an adequate investigation into a claim of theft had been carried out.
