Unfair dismissal Determination whether dismissal fair or unfair. The employee's appeal against the rejection of his unfair dismissal and disability discrimination claims was dismissed on the basis that there was no justification for applying issue estoppel and that on the evidence before it the employment tribunal had been entitled to reach the conclusion that the employee had been dismissed for misconduct and not his disability. Accordingly, there had been no error of law in the tribunal's decision.
