A dairy farm worker fired for abusing cows has won a case against his former employer for unfair dismissal on a technicality, even though he was found to have mistreated cattle.
But he will only receive half of the compensation claim because of his actions. . .
Proven animal abuse ought to be grounds for instant dismissal.
Process is important but there’s something wrong when a technical breech costs the employer so dearly even though the judge accepted the evidence against the employee and reduced the amount the employer had to pay.
