Employment - Unfair dismissal - Misconduct - Procedure adopted by employer - Employee not having opportunity to cross examine witnesses at disciplinary hearing - Fairness of employer's procedure.
In a dismissal based on conduct, it was sufficient for the employer to have a genuine belief that the employee had behaved in the manner alleged, to have reasonable grounds for that belief, and to have conducted an investigation which was fair and proportionate to the employer's capacity and resources. The employer had to act fairly, but fairness did not require a forensic or quasi-judicial investigation, for which the employer might not have the qualifications or resources.
