Sodexho Defence Services Ltd v Steele - Perverse decision by tribunal overruled  EAT
Mrs Steele was employed by Sodexho as manager of a store. She was dismissed in September 2007 for theft of some £10,000 from the store over a period of some 4 months.
Investigation by Sodexho led to the conclusion that Mrs Steele turned off a CCTV tape recording machine which otherwise would have recorded the process of bagging up and sealing the store's takings before they were collected by Securicor. The bagging up was done by Mrs Steele and a Mrs Saunders (who had left the company'sd employment by the time matters came to a head).
