Dermott v Harrow London Borough Council

[2011] EWHC 54 (QB)


The decision of a local authority's disciplinary panel that allegations of harassment against a former employee were substantiated showed no flaw in relation to the disciplinary process, the decision reached or the articulation of that decision. Whilst the panel hearing the employee's subsequent appeal had acted in breach of duty by attempting to conceal the real reason for its changed membership, that breach had not made a material contribution to any discrete or discernible deterioration in the employee's psychiatric condition or health.
