Gallacher v Scotrail Limited UKEAT/0027/19
Manager fairly dismissed without proper procedure
Ms Gallacher was dismissed without any procedure being followed as a result of a breakdown in relations between her and her manager. Following the deterioration at a critical time for the company, she was dismissed at an appraisal meeting with no procedure or pre-warning and no right of appeal. The ET found that the dismissal was not unfair and also that Scotrail did not know (and could not reasonably have been expected to have known) of her disability. Ms Gallacher appealed.
