Airbus UK v Webb EAT/0453/06

Reports relating to this case:

  • Unfair dismissal: Expired disciplinary warnings must be disregarded for all purposes

    13 June 2007

    In Airbus UK v Webb EAT/0453/06 the EAT has held that where an employee was dismissed for gross misconduct, but would not have been dismissed but for the fact that he had an expired final written warning on his record, the dismissal was unfair. The result of the expiry of the warning was that he was entitled to be treated as though he had no disciplinary record at all.
