Adey-Jones v O'Dowd - Percentage of employer's responsibility must be taken into account when assessing compensation for loss due to illness after dismissal  EAT
Mrs O'Dowd worked in a care home run by Mrs Adey-Jones. A police investigation and internal disciplinary proceedings into suggestions that she was stealing from a patient led to Mrs O'Dowd being dismissed. Mrs O'Dowd denied the allegations and none of them were ever proved. She found new work (at lower pay) but soon became ill and had to leave that job as well.
