Midland Bank plc v Madden [2000] IRLR 288 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Misconduct: Range of reasonable responses test is not wrong

    1 April 2000

    In Midland Bank plc v Madden, the EAT holds that, while no court short of the Court of Appeal can discard the range or band of reasonable responses test as a determinative test, a tribunal is free to substitute its own views for those of the employer as to the reasonableness of dismissal as a response to the reason shown for it.
