Adama and Partnerships in Care Ltd  UKEAT 0047/14/1206
The ET found a dismissal fair following a concession by the claimant, a nurse, that had he used excessive force in restraining a patient, such conduct merited dismissal. The claimant appealed on the ground that the ET had not itself reached a conclusion that the sanction was a fair one. The EAT found that the ET had failed to expressly make such a finding and that there was no room to infer the same from its other conclusions. Question of remedy remitted to a fresh tribunal, but on basis that ET’s findings as to other aspects of the dismissal remained intact.

In a tripartite arrangement between contract workers, employment agencies and an end user, the contract workers complained that the end user’s ban against them working on its sites was an act extending over a period under section 68(7) of the RRA 1976.
The Court found that the end user’s conduct did not extend beyond the last instance on which the ban was invoked as there was no on-going relationship between the parties.
