Jones v Gwent CC

[1992] IRLR 521

Case summary last updated at 18/02/2020 19:13 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Jones v Gwent CC

A lecturer was accused of gross misconduct. This allegation was referred to the disciplinary committee twice (this was the disciplinary procedure under the contract) but was rejected both times, but LA decided to sack her anyway (after she accused LA of sex discrimination). High court declared the dismissal to be invalid and hence ineffective, granting an injunction preventing the employer from sacking her pursuant to the ineffective notice of dismissal, and may not sack her unless proper grounds were made out and the disciplinary procedure followed.
