Having A NatteRR - Series 3: Episode 2

August 6, 2020

Robinson Ralph returns with yet another episode of 'Having A NatteRR'.

This week, Simon, David and Sam discuss the case of West v Redditch Borough Council. In this case, the Claimant was dismissed after accidentally opening a message on his phone containing footage of a woman making "sexual moans", which was heard by over 100 of his colleagues during a meeting.

The Claimant brought a claim of unfair dismissal and breach of contract and alleged that the noises were from a video of a 'goose honking'.

The Employment Tribunal ruled that 'on the balance of probabilities' the sounds were of a sexual nature and that the Claimant's "dishonest" explanation resulted in the dismissal rather than the video itself.

An interesting case with some useful lessons....for once!
