Centrewest Buses v Alas - Tribunal must consider the evidence actually before the employer, and not substitute its own view  EAT
Mr Alas was a bus driver. Following a fight with another driver he was dismissed for gross misconduct. The Employment Tribunal found his dismissal unfair. It concluded that Centrewest had a genuine belief that Mr Alas was guilty of being the aggressor in a fight, but that the belief was not based on reasonable grounds. Centerwest had, in its view, overlooked and disregarded evidence, and not allowed Mr Alas to set out his whole case. Centrewest appealed.
