Article summary

In an unfair dismissal case, the reason for dismissal is the set of facts known to the employer, or of beliefs held by him, which cause him to dismiss the employee. If the facts known to the decision-taker within the employer, or beliefs held by him, have been manipulated by some other person involved in the disciplinary process who has an inadmissible motivation then, in such a case, the motivation of the manipulator can in principle be attributed to the employer and render the dismissal unfair.
