Employment Unfair dismissal. The employees were school drama teachers responsible for the performance of drama production by GCSE students. They staged a performance by the students which included graphic descriptions of sexual intercourse, rape and oral sex. The employees were dismissed for gross misconduct. The employment tribunal upheld their claim for unfair dismissal. The employers appealed. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the appeal, held that the tribunal's decision was perverse and it remitted the case for a fresh tribunal for a rehearing.
