Mr Porchetti won his claim for unfair dismissal.
In Mr P Porchetti v Brush Electrical Machines Ltd although a judge agreed that Mr Porchetti had contributed to his own dismissal, the claimant prevailed. The Respondent accepts it did not follow a procedure when dismissing the Claimant and so the Claimant’s dismissal was procedurally unfair.
