Sharon Shoesmith Wins Appeal Against Her Dismissal

Monday, 6 June 2011

Sharon Shoesmith has successfully argued that her dismissal from Haringey Children's Services was procedurally unfair following the Baby P case. The opposing argument that the situation had been 'too urgent' for any other course of action was rejected.

Fair and reasonable reasons for which an employer may dismiss its staff do exist. However, regardless of the reason, lawful and fair procedures must still be followed. Also, where it is important that an employee is disengaged from their duties during an investigatory process for example, there are lawful means by which this may be done.
