In a special yuletide edition we talk about W Brooks & Son v Skinner  IRLR 379. It’s not exactly a classic – but it is about dismissing someone who got drunk at a Christmas party – and in December we all know that employment law is mainly about Christmas parties.
Actually this is quite a nice case that has something to say about zero tolerance policies – which links in to the very recent case of Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd v Spoor– so it’s not just gratuitous attempt to link employment law to Christmas.
But it is partly that.
Happy Christmas everyone.
