Senior Manager at Wirral Council dismissed for gross misconduct for email about Joe Blott
A 22 page Employment Tribunal decision published in late November 2018 dismissed a Mr Leyland Otter’s allegations of unfair dismissal and unpaid redundancy.
Wirral Council had sacked Mr Otter for gross misconduct on 6th February 2018 because of an offensive email he had written about Joe Blott to a friend referred to as Mr H. Unfortunately Mr H to Mr Otter in his reply had accidentally copied in Joe Blott.
Mr Otter’s claimed that what he had written in the email did not amount to gross misconduct and had it not been for the disciplinary proceedings brought against him he would have instead been made redundant on the 7th February 2018.
However the Employment Tribunal Judge did not agree with Mr Otter’s allegations and determined that Wirral Council had correctly dismissed him for gross misconduct.
